At the New York Times, journalist Susan Dominus reports that the demand for workshops on dating violence has increased in the wake of reports that pop star Chris Brown is an abuser.

In the article, Ms. Dominus profiles professional teaching artist Yalitza Garcia; whose "combination of street and school smarts makes her a precious urban resource, an educator who can walk into any classroom full of teenagers not only fearless, but confident that she’ll have them in the palm of her hand."

FYI: Here is an earlier blog entry on the New York Times about the ways in which some teens are reacting to the news that mega-star Chris Brown reportedly beat his mega-star girlfriend until she was bloody and bruised.
