Dating violence education offered

The University of Arkansas at Little Rock MidSOUTH Training Academy is offering free continuing education on dating violence from 9 a.m. to noon Wednesday, July 24, in the multipurpose room at the Gov. Mike Huckabee Nature Center, 1400 Black Dog Road in Pine Bluff.

Statistics show that one in three teenagers has experienced violence in a dating relationship. This workshop is designed to train individuals to educate teens about this issue, how to be safe and where they can get help. This workshop is also designed to provide information directly to teenagers, school and church groups and others working with teens.

The trainer will be Rebecca Bennett, education coordinator with the Arkansas Coalition Against Domestic Violence.
