Relationship abuse among young people is the most prevalent form of youth violence. According to the CDC, in the last year, nearly 1 in 9 female teens and about 1 in 13 male teens reported experiencing physical dating abuse. Among adults that have experienced relationship abuse, 23% of women and 14% of men had their first experiences before the age 18. In order to reduce occurrences of relationship abuse, measures have to be taken towards prevention.
