Invite Dee Dee to Speak to your Group

Teen dating abuse is an important topic we need to bring into the light as awareness can stop the cycle.  

  • Studies show that 1 in 3 young women in the United States will be in an abusive relationship (verbal, emotional, physical, and/or sexual) at some point between the ages of 16 and 24.

  • Emotional and verbal abuse can be just as damaging as physical and sexual abuse.

  • All forms of abuse have short-term and long-term effects.

  • Most adults (81% of parents in one study) don’t believe or don’t know if teen dating violence is an issue.


The presentation  will help parents, teachers and school counselors, abuse victims, and anyone who cares for teens learn:

  • The protective factors that shield youth from becoming involved with or staying with an abuser

  • Signs of an unhealthy romantic relationship

  • How easily adolescents can become involved in an abusive relationship and how abuse can start subtly

  • Reasons teenagers may stay in one, from peer pressure and shame to the misguided belief that their abusers are going to change

  • How to help a tween or teenager get out of an unhealthy or abusive relationship and heal

Dee Dee is available for speaking at schools, churches and other organizations to help raise awareness and protect our youth. 
Let's connect.
