dc.description.abstract The purpose of this project was to establish greater understanding of the relational and situational context of teen dating violence (TDV) within adolescent relationships. Between 10 and 25% of adolescents report past year TDV. TDV victimization increases risk for injury, antisocial behaviors, suicidal ideation and continued violence in adult relationships.2 Interventions have been rapidly developed to address TDV, but the fundamental problem is that most have been created using theory and evidence borrowed from the adult partner violence literature, in part because of the paucity of rigorous longitudinal TDV studies.3,4 Specifically, we do not clearly understand what TDV looks like within adolescent relationships, and are left guessing about the answers to even the most basic questions like “How frequently do violent episodes occur in relationships with TDV?” and “Is there a period of increased intimacy after TDV episodes that will stymie interventions unless directly addressed?” Without this granular information about precisely why and when incidents of TDV occur, we are poorly equipped to design interventions or policies to stop the violence. en_US
