Healthy Dating Resources
Did you know that 1 in 3 teens experience physical, sexual, or emotional abuse from a dating partner?
This section of the DVCCC website was created for young people to be able to have access to a number of resources to better understand what unhealthy behaviors in relationships look like - but also how to navigate dating in healthy ways! Take some time to explore all the content provided.
The Relationship Spectrum
We often talk about relationships on a spectrum - like a scale - that ranges from healthy to abusive - with unhealthy behaviors falling somewhere in between.
When we begin to identify healthier behaviors and ways of communicating, we can move an unhealthy relationship along the spectrum to a healthier place!
DVCCC's Public Education Team developed these *interactive* video quizzes to help challenge teens to think about common dating behaviors and scenarios and place them on the relationship spectrum from healthy to unhealthy or abusive - check them out below:
Is my Relationship Healthy?
Is My Partner Really Changing?
How Would You Help a Friend?
These powerful videos and informative webinars are great resources to not only watch and learn from but to also share with friends who may need to hear these messages!

"How can I improve my relationship and behave in healthier ways when conflict comes up?"
The resources on this page were developed by DVCCC and also gathered from a number of amazing, national resources for teens -
