Ways to Prevent Dating Abuse

From a Victims Standpoint

Don't get trapped in the relationship. Don't wait until the abuse turns physical. Once there is violence either find a way to fix it or end it. If you feel trapped and alone, ask for help from teachers, parents, or friends.

From a Teachers Standpoint

If you feel that dating abuse is prevalant in your school, get training to know how to deal with it in a proper manner. Step in if the abuse is physical or violent in anyway but otherwise confront the victim in a private setting to discuss the situation. Inform local school officers for further caution of the situation.
