In the Mix

Twisted Love: Dating Violence Exposed (#407)

When loves turns ugly, you have to learn to walk away. Neve Campbell of Party of Five joins In the Mix reporters for a powerful and emotional look at something that more and more teens are facing dating violence. We meet young women who have been emotionally and physically abused by the guys they loved -- and survived to get out of the relationship. We also talk to young men who have been abusers, and visit with teens teaching other teens about sexual stereotypes in a Boston program, and a program in New York where teens attack the issue of dating violence with a unique weapon: theatre. The District Attorney of Westchester County tells teens which legal rights they have, and we learn about the signs of abuse and where you can go for help. [28 minutes] Closed Captioning
