Question 9: What are some reasons that would make teens in some same-sex relationships feel reluctant about reporting dating violence? Question 1 : What is dating violence? Answer 1: Dating violence is a pattern of assaultive and controlling behaviors that one person uses against another in order to gain or maintain power in the relationship.
The abuser intentionally behaves in ways that cause fear, degradation and humiliation in order to control the other person. Forms of this abuse can be physical, sexual, emotional and psychological. Question 2 : Why do you think abuse occurs in some teenage dating relationships?
Answer 2: Abuse occurs in a dating relationship because abusers have a sense of entitlement, i. Because of this sense of entitlement the abuser makes the choice to engage in this type of behavior. There is a misconception that alcohol, other drugs, anger or stress cause dating violence because these factors often accompany the violence.
While these outside characteristics are a contributing factor to the abuse e. The reason abusers make the choice to use violence is because they can, because it works and because they have the opportunity and self interest to do so.
Question 3 Why might it be difficult for victims to leave an abusive relationship? Answer 3: Leaving an abusive relationship can be very dangerous for teen victims. Frequently when a victim attempts to leave or does leave, the abuser will escalate their behaviors of control, threaten to kill the victim, the victim's family and friends and may threaten suicide.
It is usually after the victim has left that the abuser may commit a homicide, suicide or both. Other barriers for a teen victim to overcome may include:. Answer 4: Once again, the willingness to resort to abuse is a choice made by the abuser. Drugs can be an excuse to avoid putting responsibility for the violence where it belongs -- on the abuser. It is important to note that the use of alcohol and other drugs can escalate the frequency and severity of abuse.
Some victims may use alcohol or other drugs as a way to cope with the violence they are experiencing. Question 5: What is sexual assault? Answer 5: Sexual assault is forcing or coercing an individual to engage in any non-consensual sexual contact or sexual penetration. It is gender neutral and includes marital, stranger, date and acquaintance rape as well as child sexual assault. Answer 6: Both individuals should agree upon decisions made in a relationship.

When differences among groups were demonstrated, additional t -tests were performed to determine pairwise differences between groups. Among the approximately two thirds of U. Sexual violence victimization perpetrated by anyone during the 12 months before the survey was reported by Experiences of bullying victimization during the 12 months before the survey varied, with Specifically, female students, LGB students, and students not sure of their sexual identity consistently had the highest prevalence across all five of the violence victimization indicators.
In addition, compared with Hispanic or black students, white students had the highest prevalence of experiencing bullying victimization at school and electronic bullying. The prevalence of electronic bullying among Hispanic students was also significantly greater than the prevalence among black students. Among students who experienced physical dating violence, sexual dating violence, or sexual violence by anyone during the previous year, the most common frequency reported was 1 time for each Figure.
The pattern of frequency for violence victimization differed by type of victimization. The frequency of physical and sexual dating violence varied significantly by sex Table 3. This frequency distribution pattern was similar for sexual dating violence. The prevalence at the higher end of frequency for sexual dating violence was significantly greater for male students compared with female students These analyses could not include sexual identity because of limited data i.
Overall, The prevalence of the dating violence composite variables was significantly greater for female students compared with male students Students who did not identify as heterosexual had substantially greater prevalence of both dating violence composites. For any type of dating violence, the prevalence was For both types of dating violence, the prevalence was 5. The prevalence of experiencing any type of bullying victimization was The prevalence of experiencing any bullying victimization was significantly greater for female students compared with male students Both LGB students This report describes the prevalence and frequency of different forms of interpersonal violence victimization experienced by U.
Examining their prevalence individually and in combination by key demographic characteristics provides an overall observation and contextual understanding of interpersonal violence experienced by U. All five types of victimization, including any or both forms of dating violence and any form of bullying, were more common among female and sexual minority students, highlighting their more frequent victimization.
These findings are consistent with previous studies that reported disparities in interpersonal violence victimization, particularly dating violence and sexual violence, by sex and sexual identity 6 , 7. Disparities in health and risk for violence have been linked to sexism, homophobia, and structural disadvantage Half of students who reported sexual violence victimization by anyone did not report sexual violence by a dating partner, indicating that students who experience sexual violence are often victimized by someone other than a dating partner.
This finding is consistent with previous research 3 documenting that sexual violence happening in school during adolescence is frequently perpetrated by peers and not necessarily by dating partners. This indicates that efforts might need to be focused on preventing sexual violence both inside and outside the context of dating relationships to be most helpful.
That is, although male students do not report higher prevalence of victimization than do female students, when they do report it, they report experiencing it at a higher frequency. Previous research has documented that, among youths at high risk i. However, male adolescents might also be more likely to disclose dating violence and sexual violence when the victimization has happened more than once. This result for bullying is supported in part by previous research In addition, Hispanic students reported substantially higher prevalence of electronic bullying victimization compared with black students.
Overall, these findings highlight the importance of early engagement in effective, evidence-based efforts for preventing violence victimization and perpetration before they begin or stopping them from continuing. To help communities focus their prevention efforts on what works and to address risk and protective factors for violence and other ACEs across the social ecology, CDC developed a series of technical packages that identify key violence prevention strategies and approaches on the basis of the best available research evidence.
This series includes packages focused on sexual violence, intimate partner violence including dating violence , and youth violence including bullying. Multiple evidence-based interpersonal violence prevention approaches are directly related to the findings in this study. For example, social-emotional learning programs that support development of skills for communication, emotion regulation, empathy, and respect and that target risk factors for interpersonal violence e.
By addressing shared risk and protective factors across types of violence, social-emotional learning programs can build the skills youths need for engaging in healthy relationships with family, peers, dating partners, and others, thus preventing multiple forms of adolescent interpersonal violence and long-term consequences into adulthood.
In addition, bystander programs teach youths how to safely act when they see behaviors that increase risk for violence and change social norms within their peer groups. Although originally conceptualized as a means of challenging heterosexist attitudes to prevent sexual and dating violence 16 , such programs might also prevent other forms of adolescent violence, including bullying and violence targeting sexual, gender, and racial minorities by focusing the training on recognizing and challenging these specific harmful attitudes and behaviors 17 , Modifying the social and physical environment in schools and neighborhoods might improve safety and reduce risk for violence for more of the population than individual- or relationship-level approaches alone.
For example, one school-based prevention approach that includes a building-level intervention e. In addition, the development of safe and supportive environments in schools that promote protective factors e. Results from this report indicate that LGB youths, specifically, are at a disproportionately higher risk for interpersonal violence victimization compared with heterosexual youths. As of , gender identity has not been assessed by the YRBS nationwide.
However, during , gender identity was assessed in YRBSs conducted in 10 states and nine large urban school districts; these data show that transgender students consistently report greater prevalence of violence victimization than their cisgender peers Promotion of gay-straight alliances and support of LGBT students can help provide these youths with an accepting school environment, which might also reduce the risk for school-based violence against these youths CDC is engaged in ongoing research and programmatic activities for expanding the research evidence and adding to the knowledge base of effective primary prevention programs, policies, and practices available to communities for preventing interpersonal violence among youths.
Dating Matters includes multiple integrated prevention strategies that address risk factors for youths and their families, schools, and neighborhoods with demonstrated effects on adolescent dating violence, bullying, and peer violence in middle school. In addition, since , CDC has provided funding for primary prevention of sexual violence through the Rape Prevention and Education Program to state health departments in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and four U.
Funded organizations implement initiatives that address youths in their communities, including community- and societal-level approaches e. Their goal is to build the scientific infrastructure and community partnerships necessary for stimulating new youth violence prevention research and practice across the country, including a focus on the impact of structural factors e.
Prevention of interpersonal violence among adolescents might be most successful when a comprehensive strategy is used that addresses these ACEs at multiple levels of the social ecology simultaneously and recognizes that these different forms of victimization can be co-occurring 1.
The findings reported here also highlight the importance of acknowledging the disproportionate prevalence of these forms of victimization on certain youths i. General limitations for the YRBS are available in the overview report of this supplement 9. The findings in this report are subject to at least five additional limitations. First, substantial overlap likely existed in the measures that examined experiences of sexual violence victimization i.
Second, because of the breadth of topics included in the YRBS, violence victimization subtype measures included in the YRBS tend to be broad in nature and, in this study, were assessed by single items. More specific and detailed measures of violence victimization would allow for a comprehensive analysis of the prevalence and overlap between different forms of interpersonal violence victimization. Fourth, the interpersonal violence victimization types that could be included in this study i.
Finally, the sexual violence measures and composite measures that were created with the sexual violence measures in this report had a relatively large amount of missing data approximately 3, observations in Most of this missing data can be attributed to the use of different versions of the YRBS questionnaire that did not include the sexual violence questions in certain selected schools.
Consequently, not all students in the national sample were given the opportunity to answer the sexual violence questions and were counted as missing. When constructing the composite measures for any dating violence, and both physical and sexual dating violence victimization, the analytic sample was restricted to students who had complete data for both physical and sexual dating violence victimization, which reduced the potential for biased estimates.
To increase understanding of the differential experiences of adolescent interpersonal violence victimization, future research that focuses in more detail on the demographic groups highlighted in this study can be beneficial. For example, on the basis of these findings, additional research to better understand the characteristics and consequences of these forms of interpersonal violence on sexual minority youths is warranted.
Research exploring sex differences in the frequency of victimization across additional types of violence can add to the findings reported here. Future studies that include more detailed measures of dating violence, sexual violence, and bullying for capturing and isolating understudied subtypes of these forms of violence e. Finally, studies that examine the co-occurrence and cumulative impact of different forms of violence victimization during adolescence and into adulthood can guide more comprehensive prevention efforts.
Interpersonal violence victimization experiences of high school students are a form of ACEs and represent a substantial public health problem in the United States. The findings in this report are consistent with those in previous studies about disparities in interpersonal violence victimization by demographic characteristics; the report also provides additional insight about the specific groups of students who are at highest risk for particular types of interpersonal violence and who might benefit most from prevention efforts.
In addition, the findings increase understanding of the contextual factors associated with interpersonal violence victimization e. Prevention approaches at the individual, relationship, and school or community levels e. Corresponding author: Kathleen C. Telephone: ; E-mail: kbasile cdc.
