2 Nearly 1 in 10 high school students have been hit, slapped, or physically hurt, on purpose, by a boyfriend or girlfriend. Nearly half of all teens in relationships say they know friends who have been verbally abused.

3 Between 20% and 45% of high school students have experienced some form of physical, emotional, or sexual violence by a dating partner (Foshee, 1996; OKeefe, 1997), and nearly half of the worst incidents they experience occur at school (Molidor, Tolman & Kober, 2000).

4 Nearly three-quarters of 1,430 7th grade students surveyed reported talking to their parents about dating and teen dating violence (RTI International, 2012).

5 Studies suggest that rates of dating violence among gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender youth are comparable or even higher than those for heterosexual couples (Elze, 2002; Freedner, Freed, Yang & Austin, 2002).

6 18.7%, 41.2%, and 31.2% of 1,398 urban high school students from 22 public high schools in Boston, Massachusetts, reported past-month perpetration of physical domestic violence, peer violence, and sibling violence, respectively. At 7.9%, the perpetration of domestic violence only was rare among violence perpetrators (Rothman et al., 2010).
