By Barrie Levy, MSW

With one out of eleven high school students* in the past year experiencing some form of physical abuse—being hit, slapped, or physically hurt on purpose by a boyfriend or girlfriend—young adults need to know where they can turn to for help. Even more teens (as high as ninety-six percent) reported emotional and psychological abuse in their relationships.

This revised and updated edition of this popular book for teenagers who have questions about abusive dating relationships helps teens understand the causes and consequences of their situation, learn what they can do about it, find help from parents and other adults, and discover how to build healthier relationships. In Love and in Danger is one of the only books available on dating violence/abusive relationships that addresses young adults directly—in a straightforward and non-condescending manner. Included are facts about dating violence, tips for how to tell if your relationship is abusive, information on why dating abuse happens, and information on what you can do if you are being abused by (or are abusing) someone you love. Packed with practical advice and compelling interviews with teens, this edition features updated information and statistics, an expanded resource section, and a new afterword by the author.
