To si dovolit nesmíš : You can’t dare it
According to the research of the Czech Academy of Science, 38% of women in the Czech Republic have experience with some form of intimate violence. However, violence doesn’t start several years after the wedding. First signals of violence are noticeable at the begging of relationship. Therefore ROSA with support of the Department of crime prevention at the Prague Magistrate decided to publish book for teenagers “You can’t dare it!”. This publication will show to teenagers how to recognize first signals of violence in relationship, how to deal with dating violence and how look healthy relationships like. Part of the book is dedicated to parents and teachers who often didn’t know how to talk with young people about violence in relationships. Information for teenagers are also available at the special section of our web page www.rosa-os.cz .
