Shared Longitudinal Predictors of Physical Peer and Dating Violence

Examines longitudinal data to determine the extent to which physical peer and dating violence contributed to violence among adolescents in North Carolina. Guided by social learning and social control theories, both risk and protective factors were examined at multiple levels of the social ecology. Findings from this study can inform the development of comprehensive cross-cutting prevention strategies at multiple levels of the social ecology designed to prevent both types of violence.
