Dating a sexually abused girl

MONDAY, March 2, 2015 (Health Day News) -- Many American teens -- both boys and girls -- fall prey to physical and sexual abuse while dating, a new survey finds.Among teens who said they dated, one in five girls and one in 10 boys said they'd been abused at least once during the past year.

Women who have been abused might require a little special care, and there’s nothing wrong with that. The problem is not many people understand the dynamic of an abusive relationship and the psychological damage it can have on the survivor.

" As for the future, "we need to know more about how to effectively prevent dating violence, not just by doing classroom education about it, but also by working with parents, teachers, clergy, and other professionals who work with youth," Rothman said.

"We have already learned quite a lot about what causes dating violence, but solutions are still few and far between, and investments in prevention will undoubtedly pay off," Rothman added.

I’m not a sensitivity specialist, but I have been abused.

If you love a girl who has had to deal with this kind of trauma, I suggest you take a few of these pointers.
