It's important for parents to know the statistics, the signs that your teen's partner is an abuser, what the cycle of abuse in a relationship looks like, and what to look for if you think your teen is being abused.
Educated parents can help to stop this epidemic of abuse in teen relationships.
The prevention of domestic abuse and relationship violence can only be achieved if people know what it is - how to spot it - how it can arise in your life - and what you can do to prevent it from claiming additional victims.

Teen dating abuse and violence is happening everywhere to a startling number of teens.
It is anticipated that the public, folliwing the roll out of our new Iris website in May, will be able to view a sample of the training presentations being offered, select which one(s) that they are interested in seeing and schedule the event and date directly online by simply following a menu offering of the selected programs.While Iris will continue to serve the victims of domestic violence and strive to provide the support needed to empower those who are already victims and seeking assistance, we believe the fight to end domestic abuse requires that we expand our efforts to provide more public information about the problems and dynamics of domestic violence and the services available through Iris.Iris will make educating the public on the problems of domestic abuse a greater priority in 2018.Jane Schoen has been appointed Director of Development for Iris Domestic Violence Center. Schoen, who joined Iris last year, is working to coordinate both the Donor and Volunteer groups at Iris. Schoen helped manage the recent Iris Adopt a Family Christmas program this past holiday season which was an overwhelming success as a total of 48 families were adopted and received Christmas gifts and presents through the generosity of our community. Schoen's leadership, Iris is busy working to better organize and coordinate the donor giving program in 2018.The donations received by the Iris safe house shelter during the Christmas holidays were particularly special and came from the many generous followers of Iris who support our programs and the work we do in the fight against domestic abuse.
