Katie Couric and CBS Evening News have dedicated themselves to raising awareness for teen dating abuse. Back in December 2009, they featured a very extensive segment on teen dating violence. Katie Couric has followed up the report with an interview with dating violence experts Jane Randel and Catherine Pierce yesterday for her new web show @katiecouric. Jane Randel is a member of the National Advisory Board for the National Domestic Violence Hotline. Click here to view the full show.
CBS Evening News with Katie Couric covered a crucial issue last night, the alarming number of American teenagers experiencing abusive relationships. This dilemma is reflected in the 600 percent increase of calls and chats to loveisrespect, National Teen Dating Abuse Helpline since 2007. The CBS news crew was able to get a first hand glimpse during their visit to loveisrespect where they observed peer advocates during staged calls and chats.
Technology has made abuse easier than ever, allowing perpetrators to employ new mediums such as cell phones, email and social networking websites to control their partners. Sheryl Cates, CEO of the National Domestic Violence Hotline and loveisrespect, weighed in on the issue during the program and stated that technology has changed the dynamics of abuse.
