This paper summarizes the available evidence in three key areas related to recognizing and addressing intimate partner violence/teen dating violence in healthy relationship programs:
1) building organizational readiness to recognize and address intimate partner violence/teen dating violence; 2) offering survivor-centered and trauma-informed opportunities for participants to disclose intimate partner violence/teen dating violence; and 3) protecting survivor safety whenever intimate partner violence/teen dating violence is disclosed.
