Abusive relationships & teens

Kate's Story
 

Working on two special projects designed to bring awareness to abusive relationships among teens, Dalhousie nursing students created a YouTube video, “Kate’s Story”, which highlights the subtle progression of a “dream” relationship to one of control and abuse, and the devastating effects upon this youth.

A second group of nursing students continued the original work by designing a poster to bring awareness to the fact that abuse is not always physical, and to encourage readers to watch the YouTube video of Kate’s Story. Youth from the IWK CHOICES program provided valuable input into the unique design and content of the poster. Download the poster here.
