Statistics show that of the students currently dating, as many as 59% have experienced physical violence and 96% have experienced psychological or emotional abuse. This program will allow students to identify dating abuse, find means to help themselves or friends who may have experienced it, and recognize a caring relationship. By identifying what sexual abuse is and encouraging students to report abuse to a trusted adult, this program supports Erin's Law in effect or pending in every state.  This program also supports Indiana’s Heather Law which was put into effect on April 12, 2010, requiring schools to identify model dating violence curriculum for use with students.
