The Teen Moms' Empowerment Program (TMEP): Adolescent mothers exposed to intimate partner violence


Adolescent mothers who experience intimate partner violence (IPV) are at high risk for developing physical and psychological difficulties that affect not only themselves but also their young children. Providing developmentally-sensitive interventions that are tailored to the needs of IPV-exposed adolescent mothers may lead to improvements in health and functioning. This chapter examines one such intervention, the Teen Moms' Empowerment Program (TMEP), a ten session intervention that aims to reduce psychopathology, enhance parenting skills, and strengthen coping among young women exposed to IPV.
