The Safe Community Coalition will sponsor “What’s Love Got To Do With It? Healthy Relationships and Dating,” a lecture set for 7 – 9 p.m. on Feb. 9 at McLean High School, 1633 Davidson Drive, McLean.
In recognition of Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month, the group will host an interactive educational program for parents and high school students.
A live theatre presentation of “Remote Control” from the Deana’s Educational Theater will explore issues, attitudes and beliefs about dating relationships. Guest speaker, Lynne Russell of Dating Abuse Stops Here will speak about the murder of her 19-year-old daughter by her ex-boyfriend in 2009. The program will conclude with a community forum led by a clinical social worker specializing in adolescents and families and a trauma physician from INOVA guiding the audience in an exploration of healthy aspects of teen relationships and dating.
