February 1, 2017 Teen dating violence, also called adolescent relationship abuse, is a serious public health problem.
There is still much we do not understand about the nature and scope of this problem.
El objetivo es ofrecer un instrumento fácil de administrar a los investigadores y los profesionales para evaluar la victimización en las relaciones afectivas de adolescentes y jóvenes.
Los datos ofrecen unos índices de bondad de ajuste satisfactorios a través del análisis factorial confirmatorio, a la vez que una buena consistencia interna de la prueba, tanto para el total como para cada uno de los factores; a su vez, el análisis de invarianza factorial por multigrupo indica un ajuste adecuado para la variable sexo.
Results of an NIJ-funded study can help change that.
The survey sample at baseline (the start of the study) consisted of 2,354 parent-child pairs who were mostly white (56 percent) or Hispanic (24 percent). One year later, an abbreviated parent/caregiver survey and similar youth survey were administered to 1,471 parent-child pairs (62.5 percent of the original sample).
Teen dating violence can provide a point of potential intervention as specific types of TDV have been associated with increased alcohol and tobacco use, depressive symptoms and suicidality, eating disorders, and high-risk sexual behavior, according to the study background. Vagi, Ph D, of the CDC in Atlanta, and coauthors provide updated prevalence estimates for TDV, which include the first-ever published overall "both physical and sexual TDV" and "any TDV" national estimates using the revised and new questions.
They also examined associations of TDV with health-risk behaviors.
Among 9,900 students who reported dating, survey results indicate that female students who dated during the past 12 months had a prevalence of physical TDV only of 6.6 percent, 8 percent for sexual TDV only; 6.4 percent for both physical and sexual TDV, and 20.9% for any TDV.
Prevalence of TDV among dating males in the preceding 12 months was 4.1 percent for physical TDV only, 2.9 percent for sexual TDV only, 3.3 percent for both physical and sexual TDV, and 10.4% for any TDV.
