“When we look at the glorification of violence against women in popular culture and the peer dynamics of adolescents, it is not surprising that jealousy and control can been seen as signs of devotion and caring, not abuse.” Canadian Women’s Foundation has invested in teen school-based and community healthy relationship programs for more than 15 years, and has recently received funding from Status of Women Canada to develop a national learning strategy on teen healthy relationships.
In the teen healthy relationship programs, skills are taught through a combination of classroom work and discussion that draw on healthy relationship foundations, boundary setting, gender stereotypes, preventing dating violence and assertive communication.
Toronto (ON) – February 21, 2012 – Canadian teens are experiencing dating violence in record numbers and need help to stay safer.
Canadian Women’s Foundation, Canada’s public foundation for women and girls, is raising funds and investing in teen healthy relationship programs across Canada, where youth will learn how to stop the violence - for good.
Many of the programs incorporate important leadership opportunities for teens to co-facilitate the program.
“Working with teens to focus on violence prevention is critical to make a long term impact on ending abuse in Canada” says Beverley Wybrow, CEO of the Canadian Women’s Foundation.
