Video: Teen Dating Violence - What Do We Know About Dating Violence from Adolescence into Young Adulthood?

Teen dating violence is a serious public health problem that is also associated with increased odds of experiencing adult intimate partner violence. This webinar will provide newly emerging information from two NIH/NIJ co-funded longitudinal studies about the progression of dating violence in the period between adolescence and early adulthood. In the first presentation, Peggy Giordano, Professor of Criminology at Bowling Green State University, will present findings from the Toledo Adolescent Relationships Study that demonstrate considerable fluidity and change in the relationship abuse experiences of teens and young adults ranging in age from 13 to 29. In the second presentation, Jeff Temple, Associate Professor at University of Texas Medical Branch, will discuss the development, change, and stability of dating violence victimization over time and the development of dating violence with alcohol over time among a sample of 1,042 adolescents from 7 public high schools in Texas. Following the research presentations, Amy Sanchez, the CEO of Break the Cycle, will provide a practitioner perspective on how the research findings can be used to prevent the continuation of dating violence victimization.
