Teenage dating violence cases
Therefore, this study only a portion of incidents of violence perpetrated in dating relationships.
Close to 23,000 incidents of dating violence were reported to police in 2008.
There isn't always a big "incident" to focus in on and use to help create awareness.
There are pressures of school, work, family, peers, hormones, and many other things.
As a result, this can be a very frustrating time of life: you may feel oppressed by the authority of your parents, you may feel like you don't get to make any choices for yourself, you may have had frustrating experiences with dating or in your friendships, you may have an uncertain future (e.g., whether or where you will attend college).
Fortunately, there are several ways you can deal with your anger.
