DAIS: HIGHLIGHTING TEEN DATING VIOLENCE

Guests: Jill Murray, Ph.D. national speaker, author on teen violence; Emily Barnes, Dir. of Development and Communications and Hannah Wagner Jacoby, Training & Education Coordinator of DAIS (Domestic Abuse Intervention Services)


Dr Jill Murray is the leading expert on the subject of teen dating violence. On this program, she previewed her presentation at the annual DAIS luncheon in Madison at the Concourse Hotel on Tuesday, June 24.  Building on the concept that “love is a behavior,” she describes how young people can be influenced by the attention they receive and the role modeling they experience at home and through diverse and unfiltered media outlets.

Emily Barnes and Hannah Wagner Jacoby share how DAIS is working in our community to confront the growing problem of teen dating violence. Also, hear an update on the soon-to-be-announced opening of the new DAIS Shelter!
