Abstract

Approximately one in three adolescent girls in the United States is a victim of physical, emotional, or verbal abuse from a dating partner-a figure that far exceeds victimization rates for other types of violence affecting youth. Nationwide, nearly one in ten high school students (8.9%) has been hit, slapped, or physically hurt on purpose by a boyfriend or girlfriend. The negative health consequences for adolescents and young adults include pregnancy, sexually transmitted infections, substance abuse, depression, and suicidality.
