A panel of three speakers addresses four issues related to teen dating violence. One of the topics discussed is school-based preventive interventions for youth at risk for dating violence. Webinar participants also discuss the results of health-clinic interventions in reducing teen dating violence, birth control "sabotage," and sexual coercion. Webinar participants also considered links between pregnancy and interpersonal violence, as well as ways to improve the lives of pregnant and parenting teens. In addition, the webinar examined ways to prevent teen dating violence and improve services for those impacted by teen dating violence. Five annotated resources are listed, along with websites that discuss issues related to teen dating violence.
