Book Description :

"Adolescent Dating Violence: Outcomes, Challenges and Digital Tools summarizes the latest discussion about challenges in adolescent dating violence (DV) and digital dating abuse (DDA), emphasizing the influence of digital tools and seeking to identify similarities and differences between online and offline types of abuse. The first introductory chapter presents an overview of outcomes and future challenges of dating abuse in adolescents, focusing on the recent studies and examining prevalence, risk and protective factors and consequences of DV. Chapter two addresses a research involving quantitative and qualitative complementary studies with participants involved in same-sex relationships, aiming to give a more complete portrait of another aspect involved in the dating violence problem. The third chapter discusses the psychological traits of the adolescents perpetrating dating violence in order to identify the problematic characteristics that are related to the abuse and provide the most accurate intervention in terms of prevention. Chapter four introduces the problematic use of digital tools, explaining how they can foster abuse in the context of dating relationships, focusing on the prevalence and impacts of this emergent important phenomenon. Chapter five discusses sexting, an emerging phenomenon in dating relationships, associated with new psychosocial and digital risks. This new form of online sexual violence may increase the vulnerability of adolescent at a crucial stage in their sexual-affective development. Accordingly, the practices of sexting and its meaning in the dating relationship are characterized. Cyberbullying is another abusive typology that has been related to DDA, which is given special focus and attention in chapter six. Finally, the last chapter intends to review evidence-based DDA intervention and prevention, considering the different variables related to them, specifically the sociodemographic, risk and protective factors"--

Book Description :

This study examined relationships among adolescent dating violence, family violence, community violence, dating history, academic history, and various forms of self-efficacy among 306 high school and university students. Results showed that psychological, physical, and sexual dating violence were common occurrences among high school students with both males and females admitting perpetrating dating violence. Experiences with dating violence were less common among university students than high school students. The vast majority of university students had experiences with psychological aggression; however, experiences with physical and sexual dating violence were less common among this group of participants. Many of the variables examined were related to experiences with dating violence for at least some participant groups. All forms of violence measured were related to experiences with dating violence. Specifically, experiences with community violence (as a witness, perpetrator, and/or victim) were related to experiences with dating violence for high school students and young women in university. Similarly, experiencing corporal punishment or physical abuse from a parent was significantly related to experiences with dating violence for these same groups of young people. Finally, witnessing parental spousal abuse was also correlated with dating violence involvement for young women. The findings regarding the relationship being dating violence and other experiences with violence are discussed within a social learning theory framework. Dating history variables showed important connections with dating violence for all participant groups. Length of the longest steady dating relationship was positively correlated with dating violence experiences for university students and young women in high school. Moreover, length of the current steady dating relationship was also positively correlated with dating violence experiences for young women in high school and university. Being younger when steady dating began was also related to dating violence involvement for young women. Additionally, experiencing a first date at a younger age was associated with dating violence for young women in university. Some unexpected results were also found regarding dating history variables and dating violence. For young men in high school, low frequency of dating was related to dating violence involvement. Also contrary to expect results, high use of negotiation by participants and their dating partners was associated with dating violence involvement for university students. Academic history variables showed little relation to experiences with dating violence. For young men in high school, experiencing a grade repetition was related to involvement in dating violence. No other academic variables were found to be associated with dating violence experiences including school suspensions, expulsions, course failures, average grades, or academic aspirations or expectations. Self-efficacy variables were significantly related to experiences with dating violence for high school students. Young women in high school who were victims of any form of dating violence demonstrated lower levels of dating self-efficacy (i.e., less confidence in their ability to secure and maintain dating relationships and to protect themselves from dating violence) and those who were victims of sexual dating violence had lower levels of physical self-efficacy. Young men in high school who had perpetrated psychological aggression had lower academic self-efficacy. Implications for intervention and prevention programs are addressed.

Book Description :

This dissertation tells the story of how community level socio-political culture interacted with organizational dynamics to morph a teen dating violence prevention program into a healthy relationship education program. My dissertation offers a mixed-methodology case study of a teen dating violence prevention program developed and implemented in rural Montana, where communities are characterized by small, homogeneous populations with conservative political slants that pose particular challenges for prevention programs that are often viewed as progressive. To understand these dynamics, I conducted a survey of educators trained in the teen dating violence prevention curriculum and I completed semi-structured interviews with 8 program staff and 13 educators teaching the program. My analysis of program documentation and staff interviews shows that, in order to make the program more palatable to rural Montana communities, the program distanced itself from the controversial 'heavy-duty' issues it aimed to address as well as avoiding language it framed as 'negative.' By reframing the curriculum as 'healthy relationship education,' the program maintained distance from sex education and gender violence, both of which appeared more "political." While an influential Executive Director brought together a team that pursued the reframing strategy to increase program uptake, the leadership vacuum that followed her departure allowed the reframing to be pushed so far as to substantially erode the program's intended focus on teen dating violence prevention. Consequently, the program evolved from being primarily a teen dating violence prevention program that led with healthy relationship education to becoming a healthy relationship education program with virtually no discussion of peer or dating violence. My analysis of program implementation revealed educators' efforts to adapt the curriculum to suit the perceived needs of a given school or students. In particular, the curriculum has been adapted for younger and older students. Furthermore, some activities in the curriculum were seen as too young, particularly in more urban liberal areas. By contrast, some activities were seen as too old, particularly in some rural conservative areas. Despite the challenges, most educators evaluated the curriculum positively with respect to its impact on their students and the school climate. However, educators also lamented that the curriculum does not address social media, a major cause of student conflict. The findings of this study highlight the key roles of a community's socio-political context, as well as program organizational dynamics, in shaping the presentation, evolution and implementation of a teen dating violence prevention program for youth in rural Montana. Results underscore the need to explicitly consider the socio-political context of local communities in implementing prevention programs. Moreover, they point to the importance of a strong organizational vision and leadership to prevent program promotion strategies from eroding the core mission. While this study focuses explicitly on a teen dating violence prevention program, some of its lessons are more broadly applicable to other education and prevention programs that address sensitive topics. In particular, this study emphasizes the challenges of creating one-size fits all programming and it describes how educators vary in their implementation and adaptation practices. It also stresses the importance of keeping content relevant and engaging active learning strategies, especially when working with adolescents.

Book Description :

The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between Teen Dating Violence (TDV) attitudes and environmental and self-control constructs using structural equation models. First, adolescents (N=1236) attitudes about TDV were analyzed to determine if consistent distinct subtypes emerged. Distinct subtypes of TDV attitudes were identified: Very Unacceptable, Moderately Unacceptable, Verbal Aggression and Checking Behavior. Next the direct relationship between subtypes of TDV attitudes and self-control and environmental constructs, neighborhood disorganization, extracurricular activities and parental supervision, were investigated. TDV subtypes did indeed show unique relationships with environmental and self-control factors, further supporting the distinct types of teen dating violence (TDV). In particular, parental supervision associated with reduced tolerance for TDV, while self-centeredness, risk-seeking and low frustration tolerance self-control factors, as well as neighborhood disorganization were associated with greater tolerance for TDV. Finally, the potential mediation of the relationship between environmental constructs and TDV subtypes by self-control constructs was tested. Indirect effects of neighborhood disorganization on most subtypes of TDV were found to be mediated by self-centeredness. Parental supervision was directly associated with less tolerance for most types of TDV, but also showed strong indirect effects via greater reported frustration tolerance and less risk seeking. Implications for research, prevention and interventions on TDV are discussed.

Book Description :

Teen dating violence (TDV) is a common problem among adolescents, yet little is known about the risk markers for TDV perpetration and victimization. The purpose of this meta-analysis was to explore the relationship between family-of-origin factors (i.e., attachment, witnessing inter-parental violence, experiencing abuse as a child, poor parenting, and parental support) and TDV victimization and perpetration. A total of 27 studies, which yielded 81 effect sizes examining physical TDV perpetration and victimization, were included in the study. Results from our analysis revealed that anxious attachment was the strongest risk marker for TDV perpetration and experiencing abuse as a child was the strongest risk marker for TDV victimization. Our results also revealed that witnessing inter-parental violence was a significant risk marker for TDV perpetration and victimization, poor parenting was a significant risk marker for TDV victimization, avoidant attachment and experiencing abuse as a child were significant risk markers for perpetration, and parental support was a significant protective marker against TDV victimization. These findings highlight the importance of family factors when identifying adolescents who are at risk for TDV, as well as developing violence prevention and intervention programs.

Book Description :

Electronic communication and social media have dramatically changed the way in which individuals communicate with one another. Through this shift, they have opened the doors for inappropriate and damaging behaviour to take place. Cyberbullying occurs when the internet is continuously used to insult or intimidate a person or persons in order to hurt them in a deliberate manner (Valkenburg et. al., 2010). In adolescent dating relationships, the online environment facilitates the way in which individuals who are or were dating continue to correspond. This closer proximity between individuals, however, enables abusive and controlling behaviours within these relationships to occur outside of face-to-face contact. This study examined adolescents' perceptions of the severity of cyberbullying, motives, and the point in a dating relationship at which it is likely to become most severe. A mixed methodology was utilized within this study, using a sample of 70 grade 12 students at a high school in southwestern Ontario. It was found that cyberbullying behaviours are most likely to occur upon termination of a dating relationship, revenge is perceived as a common motive, and the severity of cyberbullying tends to be minimized.

Book Description :

Adolescent dating violence has surfaced as a significant public health issue. As teen dating violence (TDV) incidence has escalated substantially in recent years, a number of research, practice and policy efforts have been championed in response. One critical challenge in effectively addressing teen dating violence relates to the lack of research that directly considers how youth conceptualise teen dating in the first place, apart from specifically aggressive or violent relationships. This book discusses perspectives on relationship and violence in teen dating.
