Risk Factors. Certain factors may increase teens’ risk of experiencing and perpetrating teen dating violence. A number of studies have looked at the relationship between teen dating violence and community, family, peer, and individual risk factors. A lack of longitudinal data and a reliance on self-report data limits the causal connections that can be made between risk factors.

What’s more, girls who mature early also are at risk for low self-esteem, depression, eating disorders, substance abuse, and risk-taking—all things that. There are different factors that contribute to the victims and victimizers of teen dating violence: family influence, personality factors, and community. Although some of. Males may tend to underreport and deny or minimize their own aggression whereas females may over report to accept blame (Jackson, 1999). Despite the problems in estimating prevalence rates, it is not unlikely that physical aggression occurs in one of three adolescent dating relationships, an alarmingly high rate.

Violence in an adolescent relationship sets the stage for problems in future relationships, including intimate partner violence and sexual violence perpetration and/or victimization throughout life. For example, youth who are victims of dating violence in high school are at higher risk for victimization during college. It can negatively influence the development of healthy sexuality, intimacy, and identity as youth grow into adulthood 4 and can increase the risk of physical injury, poor academic performance, binge drinking, suicide attempts, unhealthy sexual behaviors, substance abuse, negative body image and self-esteem, and violence in future relationships. 5. For example, Silverman’s (2001)study of female public high school students in Massachusetts found an elevated risk of substance use problems, unhealthy weight control, sexual risk behaviors, teen pregnancy, and suicidality associated with lifetime reports of dating violence.

Risk factors that your teen may be violent can be experienced on an individual basis. Here are the individual risk factors for teen violence (2): Antisocial behaviors, attitudes and beliefs Use of drugs, tobacco or alcohol. Witnessing violence has been associated with decreased school attendance and academic performance. vi 20% of students with mostly D and F grades have engaged in dating violence in the last year, while only 6% of students with mostly A’s have engaged in dating violence. vii Further, teenage victims of dating violence are more likely than their. TDV impacts adolescents regardless of gender identity, race, socioeconomic status, and sexual orientation. Understand the risk factors.

While TDV can impact anyone, it is important to be aware of certain risk factors, including a history of abuse, prior injury from a dating partner, and witnessing violence in the home.

    I don’t know what to do I like her as a friend cause she has ADHD like me and knows I have depression and USES my depression for tell like ‘ DON’T SAY THAT IM DEPRESSED’ And when feel depressed she says ‘ YOUR NOT DEPRESSED I AM STOP LYING ‘ and one time or most of the time she hits be when I ‘ misbehave ‘ or aka break her rules she’s hits me and my crush try’s to,help me so I need help sorry if the grammar isn’t great

  • Here’s some advice: if you ever feel scared or catch yourself asking yourself “this is love, right?” You should probably leave that relationship

  • This is a question I really wanted to ask. If I want to be in a relationship with a boy I like and he likes me but my parents and his mom (his parents are divorced) hate each other is it okay for us to be together because we really like each other? I wanted to ask this because we were friends then we told each other we liked eachother and we were a little more than friends but something happened we stopped talking and we eventually got over it. I currently have a crush on him and I think he does too but I don’t know what to do! Should I find someone else or try to be with him because I know him and feel sympathy and feelings for him.

  • I thoguht it said “Inmate partner violence” which made me think “Wow. All prisoners are violent”
    Edit: Wait. Some prisoners arent violent

  • Okay so y’all say Partner means Your BF/GF or ya HuSbAnd/wiFe meanwhile in my Country’s Schools Partner is used For your Seatmate lol

  • I got out of a really bad relationships almost 3 years ago and I still have problems moving on. Im 21 now, and I have trust issues and blame myself and miss them. Does anyone have tips? I want to move on.

  • So my bf calls me fat and ugly and always mentions breaking up with me and talks about other girls all the time but he also tells me that he can’t control it and that he loves me. Am I being abused?

  • “It’s never the fault of an abused person” if the guy is being abused in a straight relationship, he’s viewed as “not good enough” for his girlfiend, or a “crybaby”, ’tis the way of society.

  • I was in an abusive relationship for very long and didn’t even know. It’s amazing how some people make themselves seem like angels when they can hide all their evil from others.

  • My told me if my boyfriend ever was to slap me or punch me I could hit them back and to call him, my Nino, and my uncle to beat his a$$ ��! I think I would do that tho he said he wouldn’t care if he went to jail he doesn’t want anybody hitting me

  • Thank you for creating this realistic and very current video. I show this video in my health class to my 7th graders when we discuss what is a healthy and unhealthy relationship. It’s made a difference!!
