DATING VIOLENCE Dating violence is never the fault of the person who is being abused. Nothing this person says, does, or wears caused the abuse or gives anyone the right to hurt her or him.
DATING VIOLENCE Over time, the abuse typically occurs more frequently and becomes more severe, leaving the target to feel that he or she has no option but to stay in the relationship. Some teenage abusers have been the target of domestic violence in their homes. This does not excuse the abuse, it can help to explain how some abusers come to believe that violence is acceptable in intimate relationships.
DATING VIOLENCE What are some of the effects of dating violence on the person who experiences the violence or abuse? Ex. Becoming depressed.
DATING VIOLENCE Roles of abuser, target, and bystander. Abuser: A person who physically, sexually, verbally, or emotionally hurts an intimate partner. Target: A person who is hurt physically, sexually, verbally, or emotionally by an intimate partner. Bystander: A person who is aware that someone is being abused in a dating relationship. The bystander may become aware of the abuse through the abusers or the targets action or words.
DATING VIOLENCE Bystanders dont have to be present when the abuser is hurting the target; they simply have to know the abuse. Although bystanders cannot rescue the target from the abuse, they can encourage him or her to talk to people who can provide help and guidance.
