"In Love and In Danger" was extremely important and well researched and well written. The issue of teen dating violence has been so hidden and ignored. I applaud Robin Abcarian for her coverage of this important subject.
I am writing to add to the resources listed in the article. The Family Violence Project of Jewish Family Service has a teen violence-prevention program, based on Barrie Levy's curriculum, and it is available for school classrooms in the Los Angeles area. For more information, please call (818) 908-5007.
The Los Angeles Commission on Assaults Against Women, (213) 655-4235, has teen abuse-prevention posters available to schools and other organizations serving teens.
The Santa Monica Rape and Treatment Center has a program geared to public school students focused on date rape prevention: (213) 319-4000.
