Position Statement: Violence Prevention and Response Services for Youth Who Are Pregnant or Parenting

Date: June 22, 2016

We promote egalitarian norms that support healthy relationships, voluntary birth-planning, and non-violent means to deal with stress and conflict as integral approaches to reducing the prevalence of intimate partner violence (IPV) among youth who are pregnant, expectant, and/or parenting.

We support the development and delivery of resources and services specific to aiding young people who are expecting children or parenting for developing healthy relationships, managing conflict with their intimate partners, removing themselves from harm, and recovering from trauma should intimate partner violence occur.

Healthy Teen Network shares position statements on relevant issues for young people as a resource to support your advocacy efforts. See more position statements here.
