Pennsylvania’s human service agencies report an increase in domestic violence. Is it related to the economic downturn? We talk with Anne Ard, director of the Center County Women's Resource Center, and Peg Diekers, director of the PA Coalition Against Domestic Violence, about the connection between financial stress and domestic violence. Also, the rate of teen pregnancy is on the rise, after a decade of downward trends. Patricia Koch directs a new program at Penn State aimed at combating the twin issues of teen pregnancy and STDs.
