Dating-violence — experienced in some form by about one third of all U.S. high school students — is the perpetration of violence or threats of violence upon a partner in a relationship. This chapter emphasizes the development of dating-violence prevention programs in schools and briefly discusses interventions for victims and perpetrators. Schools present an ideal opportunity for offering prevention programs, because they offer universal education (prior to the legal dropout age) and have repeated contact with youth. Presenting programs to all youth rather than those considered vulnerable or at risk decreases the stigma of attending the program.
