Ads tackle teen domestic violence

The government is running an advertising campaign from today to make young people aware of the potential for abuse in teenage relationships. It follows research by the children's charity the NSPCC which suggests that a third of teenage girls are forced into having sex and a quarter of them have been attacked by their boyfriends. Psychologist Dr Linda Papadopoulos discusses how raising awareness includes empowering both boys and girls and helping them recognise abusive behaviour.
