Arts for Social Change

I’m excited to say the arts are finding real traction in the realm of dating violence education and outreach. I’ve recently had news from Linda King, founder of Fix the Hurt that their new play will have its world premier at El Paso Community College. Brava! This is wonderful news.

Our new play will have its world premier at Creative Stages Youth Theatre in Peoria in October 2011. We are thrilled to have award winning youth playwright Jim Gradillas finalizing the script and directing the premier.

Teen Dating Violence

Dating violence is defined by the United States Department of Justice as: “the perpetration or threat of an act of violence by at least one member of an unmarried couple on the other member within the context of dating or courtship.” This also includes dating between same sex couples, although most statistics have been gathered from heterosexual couples. Statistics show that one in three teenagers have experienced violence in a dating relationship. In dating violence, one partner tries to maintain power and control over the other through some kind of abuse. Dating violence crosses all economic, racial and social lines; most victims are young women who are also at higher risk for serious injury. 

Young women need a dating safety plan, even lesbians.. Teen dating violence often is hidden because teenagers typically:
–Are inexperienced with dating relationships.
–Want independence from parents.
–Have romanticized views of love.
–Are pressured by peers to have dating relationships.

Teen dating violence is influenced by how teenagers look at themselves and others. Young men may believe:
–They have the right to “control” their female partners in any way necessary.
–“Masculinity” is physical aggressiveness.
–They “possess” their partner.
–They should and can demand intimacy.
–They may lose respect in their male peer groups if they are attentive and supportive toward their girlfriends.

Young women may believe:
–They are responsible for solving problems in their relationships.
–Their boyfriend’s jealousy, possessiveness and even physical abuse, is “romantic.”
–Abuse is “normal” because their friends are also being abused.
–They think they can “cure” the abusive boyfriend.
–There is no one to ask for help.
