Domestic Violence & Sexual Assault    Teen Violence

NOTE: Information about date rape drugs is here. This archived page is the assignment from my Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault class that served as the foundation for building the page. 

For many, a frightening aspect of abusive relationships is the young age at which they start occurring. An important response is thus trying to educate young people about what constitutes a healthy relationship and how to deal with relationships that are turning abusive. As Levy's book points out, frequently parents and teachers also need to be educated in these issues so they can identify have tools for intervening appropriately. 

The assignment for this week involves searching the internet for websites that have helpful information about dealing with some aspect of teen dating violence. The target audience for the website can be teens, parents or teachers; it can include information about identifying abuse, interventions or educational programs. The websites you suggest will be turned into a page within, so highlight the 2 sites you think are best and write a concise, informative 1 paragraph description. As before, feel free to suggest additional sites, but remember the emphasis is on quality (not quantity). 

Searching the Internet

The internet now has well over 2 billion pages and there are several hundred search engines to help people find information. My personal preference, based on my own use and looking at my webmaster log for this page, is Google. They have the most pages indexed and one of the better ways of matching keywords. The boxes below provide direct access; the safe search box filters out adult content and can be helpful for searches about sexual assault, women in prison, etc.

You do not have to use these if you prefer another search engine. For more information about search engines, how they work, tips for finding what you want on the internet, and various ratings of search engines, check out SearchEngineWatch
