Bullying, Sexual, and Dating Violence Trajectories From Early to Late Adolescence

Describes a longitudinal study of 1,162 high school students that examined the impact of family abuse and conflict, self-reported delinquency, and peer delinquency on the development of bullying perpetration, sexual harassment perpetration, and teen dating violence perpetration. Based on results, the study recommended that anti-violence interventions should address exposure to family violence and include opportunities to learn healthy relationships and conflict management skills and prevention efforts should consider developmental timing of aggression and violence.
