Dating violence or abuse can occur in intimate relationships between people from ages pre-teen through adulthood. However, studies have shown that teen’s ages 13-18 are at high risk as they are beginning to explore dating and intimacy. Additionally, this age group is at risk because statistics have shown that they are the least likely group to disclose warning signs or abuse to a friend, family member or trusted adult and especially to report dating violence to the police.
