Interparental conflict adolescent dating relationships
This longitudinal study examined whether nonviolent aspects of interparental conflict, in addition to interparental violence, predicted dating violence per-petration and victimization among 150 Mexican American and European American male and female adolescents, ages 16 to 20.
When parents had more frequent conflict, were more verbally aggressive during conflict, had poor conflict resolution, or were physically violent during conflict at baseline, adolescents were more involved in dating violence, both perpetration and victimization, at 1-year follow-up.
This is among the first study to identify subgroups of TDV victimization and to examine the stability of group membership over time.
In this latest report, EIF looked at 13 interventions, which fall into two broad categories: Of the 13 interventions, eight fall into the couple-focused category and five into the parent-focused category.
Through an initial assessment, eight of the 13 programmes were found to have had positive impacts on child outcomes, and showed positive impacts for children in poverty or economic pressure.
Adolescents ’ appraisals of parental conflict and their emotional distress mediated the relationships between nonviolent parental conflict and dating violence.
In contrast, interparental violence directly predicted involvement in dating violence.
