Breaking the Cycle of Teen Dating Violence Part 1

This riveting educational documentary DVD helps viewers see how they can unwittingly be transformed from "victim of abuse" into "abuser." Teen dating violence is an essential link that is both cause and effect for deeper cycles of domestic violence. Many young women mistakenly believe that getting the "bad boy" to love them makes them more special than all of the other girls. When this fails, desperate victims often fight back out of a sense of survival - if they survive. Not surprisingly, young women and young men are often too embarrassed to report the fact that they are being abused. Tragically, when children see the violence between Mom & Dad, this often sets the stage for a "next generation" of abuser and abused. The story is hosted by a veteran team leader of a district attorney's family crimes division and authenticated by current and former inmates. All provide introspection and a candid, and sometimes disturbing look at harm that runs much deeper than visible physical scars. The video offers several ways to successfully break the cycle of domestic violence by recognizing the behavior for where it leads, ending the relationships, having an escape plan and changing the predictable outcomes.

"Outstanding! This video provides a provocative look into one path we all need to avoid..."

"Every young adult whoever thought of staying in a "rough relationship" needs the insight this video offers!"
