This presentation includes information on the relationship between ARA and condom/birth control interference, the likelihood of pregnancy among female victims of ARA, and the difficulty of negotiating the use of birth control with abusive partners. The presenters also provided ways to define healthy relationships and to strengthen grantees’ project activities in defining both ARA and healthy relationships. Lastly, the presenters provided an intervention education tool to help youth identify whether they are in a healthy relationship. Grantees can use this PowerPoint presentation to present the issue of ARA to staff, their board, and volunteers.
