Why domestic abuse youth outreach programs are important

Domestic abuse has never ending effects on our youth, and the impact on children being exposed to abuse in the home is startling. AVDA’s domestic abuse youth outreach programs in Houston TX aim to teach parents and children about these effects such as:

  • Depression, anxiety and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Increased aggression both at home and away
  • Somatic disorders such as stomach aches, headaches, sleeplessness, cold sores
  • High risk play activities
  • Suicide
  • Drug and alcohol abuse
  • Early teen pregnancy

Teens are also at risk of repeating the abusive behaviors learned at home, and the prevalence of teen dating abuse is a tragic outcome, with one in four teen girls reporting having experienced sexual or physical violence in a dating relationship.

AVDA’s Safe Dates Youth Educational Program

AVDA’s nationally-acclaimed Safe Dates program is a program for middle and high school students designed to educate and prevent dating violence victimization and perpetration. Safe Dates is an eight-session program that shows the warning signs of domestic abuse within relationships.
