It’s estimated that one in three teenage girls in this country has experienced some form of abuse in an intimate relationship: verbal, emotional or sexual – or all three.
Teens are suffering, and they aren’t always getting the help they need. In his KCBS Cover Story series, Jeffery Schaub examines the cycle of violence and how teens are struggling to break free.
