In 1986, Vicki Crompton-Tetter lost her daughter Jenny to an abusive boyfriend.  Now, 25 years later, she will share her story about the problems of teen dating violence at the 2011 Women to Women Luncheon presented by Rachel Coalition and NCJW Essex County Section.  The event takes place on Tuesday, October 18 from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Cedar Hill Country Club in Livingston.

At the Women to Women Luncheon, Crompton-Tetter, co-author of the recent book,

Saving Beauty from the Beast, will offer guidance for parents to teach their teens about dating violence.  She will be joined by Dr. Jennifer L. Hartstein, PsyD, contributing psychologist for CBS’ The Early Show and a specialist treating high-risk children and adolescents.
