LIVE from New York City on Thursday, March 12 at 6:00 p.m. ET*, 106 & PARK will devote an entire episode to relationship abuse, a form of domestic violence currently affecting our teens. Sparked by recent incidents within the entertainment industry, 106 & PARK will gather a panel of experts, industry insiders, victims, perpetrators and survivors to carefully examine the impact of domestic violence among our youth and provide tips on breaking the cycle of abuse.
This two-hour special is not intended to explore the details surrounding recent incidents. Instead it is a forum to inform and enlighten ‘tweens and teens about the dangers surrounding relationship abuse. This special episode of 106 & PARK will address the issue head-on and coach viewers on the dangers of being involved in an abusive relationship, whether it’s with a parent, friend or partner. Sadly, many teens do not even know they are in an abusive relationship until it’s too late.
