Webinar opportunity: Approaches to addressing teen dating violence in health care

October 10, 2019  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

Adolescent-centered care should encompass multiple aspects of physical, social and emotional aspects of young people’s lives, including romantic relationships.

In the U.S. over the past year, nearly 1 in 10 adolescents has experienced physical or sexual abuse from a dating partner, leading to various health consequences.

Despite this high prevalence and related health issues, teen dating violence is often overlooked by health care providers.

An upcoming webinar hosted by the Adolescent Health Initiative will begin with an overview of teen dating violence and current research. It will then dive into health care identification and response to adolescent intimate partner violence and where leaders in the field hope to go in the future.

The webinar will be held on Thursday, Oct. 24 from 2:30 p.m. until 3:30 p.m. and features:

  • Vijay Singh, M.D., M.P.H., M.S., FAAFP, clinical assistant professor in the departments of family, emergency, and internal medicine at the U-M Medical School
  • Quyen Ngo, Ph.D., L.P., internship lead, training and education core, U-M Injury Prevention Center and research assistant professor, emergency medicine, U-M Medical School
