During her St. Ambrose presentation Crompton-Tetter will talk about her daughter, Jennifer Crompton, and share details about the behaviors, the secrets, the lies and the mistakes that were made as part of her powerful story of tragedy and forgiveness. Her presentation is an opportunity for both parents and teens to learn the dynamics of teen dating abuse. Crompton-Tetter also will talk about warning signs, statistics, professional findings and current legislation.
The St. Ambrose Psychology Department, Psi Chi International Honor Society in Psychology, the Psychology Club and Women's Studies are sponsoring the event.
