Centers disease control dating violence
CDC also funds the Student Health and Safety Survey, and has helped create a tool to assess school environments to see how school designs contribute to fear and violence.
In regard to prevention, CDC funds 10 Academic Centers of Excellence (ACE) on youth violence.
Note that some youth also experience reproductive coercion: abusive behaviors by male partners intended to promote pregnancy in a dating partner in a Massachusetts study were four to six times more likely than their non-abused peers to have been pregnant and eight to nine times more likely to have attempted suicide in the past year.
It can occur in person or electronically and may occur between a current or former dating partner.
Blueprints for Violence Prevention, which has identified 11 model prevention programs, has also received CDC funding.
CDC has publicized Best Practices of Youth Violence Prevention: A Sourcebook for Community Action and is currently collaborating with four universities on a multisite violence prevention project.
Featured projects include Choose Respect, about developing healthy dating relationships, and the Rape Prevention and Education (RPE) program, among others.
CDC has also produced television programming, including Break the Silence: Stop the Violence.
This agency also sponsors the School Health Policies and Programs Study, which is billed as the largest and most comprehensive of its kind.
