The purpose of this project is to inform adolescents of how healthy and unhealthy behaviors are expressed in relationships. The intention is for adolescents to be able to identify healthy dynamics and unhealthy behaviors in relationships, to potentially help a friend or a peer who is experiencing unhealthy dynamics in their relationships . The lack of information in the adolescent population about potential patterns or behaviors could be considered part of the increase that has been seen in teen dating violence. This project serves as a preventative measure to decrease the potential of both males and female adolescents to experience teen dating violence, as well as decrease the possibility of adolescents becoming perpetrators of teen dating violence.
