Teen Dating Violence: A Literature Review and Annotated Bibliography


This report, from the Department of Justice, provides a review of available resources and studies on dating violence among high school and middle school youth. The effectiveness of identified prevention programs is also explored. Analyzing both quantitative and qualitative literature, the report highlights important risk factors and predictors of teen dating violence and abuse. Local health departments play a key role in eliminating major risk factors at the community level, promoting protective factors, and advocating for an immediate and appropriate response through the legal system.
