Teen Dating Violence Prevention Curriculum

Listen to our radio webcast program on this subject

Too many young Indigenous women are survivors of dating violence or will experience dating violence at some point in their lives. As teenagers, dating violence can profoundly affect young survivors' future relationships, self-esteem, and feelings of self-worth.




Yet friends, families, tribes, schools, and society overall often ignore dating violence and the broader issues of lifelong trauma associated with it. Young women are not taught about dating violence and date rape until it is too late. The problem is nearly always addressed only after it occurs, instead of preventing it before it happens.

The Native American Women's Health Education Resource Center recognizes this problem and has developed the Teen Dating Violence Curriculum and Workbook for Native American Girls to address this issue.


The workbook contains information and exercises that deal with
- self-esteem
- setting and enforcing boundaries
- warning signs
- escaping a violent situation safely
- communicating clearly
- gender stereotypes
- understanding the results of trauma
- places to find more information
- recognizing healthy relationships
- legal rights
- self-care
- healing from dating violence


Facilitator's Guide


The accompanying facilitator's guide provides discussion topics and approaches to help facilitate insightful and useful discussions. The workbook and facilitator's guide are ideal for the classroom or community groups.

We hope you will join us in our effort to assist the young women in our communities in finding the self-confidence to avoid abusive relationships and the knowledge to recognize healthy relationships.
