This is an excellent video that shows the subtle effects of Dating Violence & Domestic Violence. What we love about this portrayal is that it shows that physical violence is not the only thing that we need to think about when we think of Dating Violence & Domestic Violence. Intimidation, subtle coercion and emotional abuse are a huge part of the DV dynamic.
The Signs is a short film created and written by Long Island teenagers for teenagers about teen dating violence that goes beyond the “bruises and black eyes.” The short is the product of a grant from The Allstate Foundation to the Center for Nonprofit Leadership at Adelphi University, produced by the Ghetto Film School and guided by representatives from local domestic violence agencies.
