Teen dating violence could be also referred to as relationship abuse, intimate partner violence, relationship violence, dating abuse, domestic abuse or domestic violence.
In the process of socializing during adolescence, early teens usually remain in same-sex groups with very little social contact with the opposite sex, while mid-adolescents tend to hang out together in a loose confederation of boys and girls.
This review finds that children and adolescents living with domestic violence are at increased risk of experiencing emotional, physical and sexual abuse, of developing emotional and behavioral problems and of increased exposure to the presence of other adversities in their lives.
It also highlights a range of protective factors that can mitigate against this impact, in particular a strong relationship with and attachment to a caring adult, usually the mother.
