2018 Mississippi Teen Dating Violence Summit Call for Presentations

The Teen Dating Violence Summit is a kick-off for Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month (February). There will be sessions for teens and their parents/chaperones/leaders to learn about the red flags of dating violence, how to intervene in abusive situations, and how to make healthy choices. The attendees will be able to take these lessons back to their communities/organizations/schools around the state.


MCADV is partnering with the Office Against Interpersonal Violence and several programs around the state, including domestic violence shelter programs, to provide the most comprehensive (and fun!) summit possible. MCADV’s Teen Dating Violence Prevention Planning Committee is seeking presentations for 60-90 minute keynote AND breakout sessions that are diverse, practical and address critical issues of importance in creating an environment where dating violence is identified and rejected as the societal norm. The goal of this summit is to build skills, knowledge and awareness in order to effectively and appropriately prevent dating violence where possible, and intervene in already actualized abusive situations.Proposals should be teen-centered and include culturally competent, evidence-based, and practice-informed approaches. The sessions should include innovative strategies and support best practices.


Invited session topics include but are not limited to:

Red Flags of Abuse • Pattern of Abuse • Relationship Messages in the Media • Communicating with Your Teen • Breaking Up Safely • Cyber Abuse • Sexting • Dating Violence in the LGBTQ Community • Engaging Youth • Sexual Assault • Stalking • Prevention Strategies • Intervention Strategies • Evidence-based and practice-informed prevention approaches • Healthy growth and sexuality • Making Healthy Choices • Addressing Dating Violence in Underserved Populations (LEP, disabled, rural, etc.)


Conference related expenses will be decided on an individual basis by the committee. Each room will have a laptop, projector, sound system and internet access.
