Greene County commissioners recently proclaimed February Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month. According to the proclamation, women between 16 and 24 are more vulnerable to intimate partner violence, experiencing abuse at a rate almost triple the national average. Nearly half of the teenagers who experience dating violence report that incidents of abuse take place in a school building or on school grounds. Teachers, counselors and school staff also should be trained so they can recognize signs of dating violence. The proclamation urges county residents to work toward ending teen dating violence by empowering young people to develop healthier relationships; assisting victims in accessing the information and supportive services they need; creating better and more resources for young people in need; instituting effective intervention and prevention policies in schools; and engaging in discussions with family members and peers. For more information, call Domestic Violence Services of Southwestern Pennsylvania’s Greene County satellite office at 724-852-2463. Participating in the proclamation presentation are, from left, Commissioner Dave Coder, Cheryl McCready of Domestic Violence Services of Southwestern Pennsylvania and Commissioner Archie Trader.
