Overbrook High School, CC Women's Center & PHPD collaborate for Teen Dating Violence Awareness Program

Teen Dating Violence Awareness & Prevention
 
On March 10, 2017, the Pine Hill Police Department and Pine Hill School District joined the Camden County Women’s Center and Pine Hill Police Domestic Victim Response Team (DVRT) for a presentation to the student body of Overbrook High School focused on raising awareness for teen dating violence in recognition of Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention month, which is held annually in February. 
 
 
One of the many topics discussed
Recognizing signs of a friend or family member that may be experiencing abuse:
  • You notice their partner calls them names or puts them down
  • If they talk to other people, their partner gets extremely jealous
  • They apologize for their partner’s behavior and make excuses for it
  • Controls what they wear or how they look.
  • You’ve seen fights escalate to breaking or hitting things.
  • Their weight, appearance or grades have changed dramatically.
  • They have injuries they can’t explain or the explanations they give don’t make sense. 
     
During the assembly students participated in a group activity during which they each held a sign describing a dating abuse behavior. As a group, they aligned the described behaviors in order of severity, then provided their perception of how to identify the action.
