Know Abuse Drama Troupe
"Know Abuse" is a powerful, live dramatic performance that depicts teens in real situations and shows how abuse of power in relationships (both in dating and friendship) diminishes dignity, self-esteem and spirit.It's the story of a group of high school students who find their values, beliefs and opinions of other classmates put to the test when a substitute drama teacher challenges them to speak the truth---using a real ticking grenade to ensure their honesty.


Educational Services
Healthy Teen Relationships curriculum can be incorporated into any discipline, including health, English, physical education, or family living curricula.


Educational Opportunities For School Personnel
