Relationship Dynamics and Teen Dating Violence

This National Institute of Justice research brief highlights the prevalence of teen dating violence (TDV) and concludes that the characteristics within dating relationships affect the safety of both partners. Researchers are starting to look at the role that positive relationship dynamics play in reducing the likelihood that teens would leave abusive relationships. This brief suggests that a wider approach to understanding relationships that includes both positive and negative aspects should be considered as a preventative measure against TDV.
