What is Teen Dating Violence?

One in three adolescents in the U.S. is a victim of physical, sexual, emotional or verbal abuse from a dating partner, a figure that far exceeds rates of other types of youth violence.

According to the latest CDC Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance (YRBS), Georgia ranks as the worst state in the nation for teens experiencing dating violence:  One in six teen respondents to the YRBS (16%) indicates he or she has experienced some form of this abuse.
