Additionally, an item that asked specifically about sexual DV and had the same response choices was added, which allowed students to report how many times they had experienced such victimization.These changes in the measurement of DV revealed a substantial sex category difference in prevalence estimates, with female students reporting a significantly higher frequency of DV victimization (either physical or sexual) compared with male students (20.9% vs 10.4%).
Further studies are needed to elucidate the contexts of sexual violence exposure for male students and how this may be related to NMUPD.
Of the adolescents, 91.7% live with their parents and the vast majority is dating or has dated.
The victimization conflict behaviours superseded those of perpetration and the boys showed more conflict strategies (of the self and the other) compared to girls, while girls and older boys had demonstrated more non-abusive strategies of the self.
The definition of dating violence adopted in research brings implications for the decision-making of the instruments and on the rates of prevalence.
This chapter presents data of a research with 415 adolescents, aged 14–19 years old, from public and private high school – southern Brazil.
The conflict behaviours were significant in adolescents who initiated their sexual activity earlier and non-abusive strategies when dating couples or friends talk about sex.
The results justify the need to integrate the topic of dating violence in adolescent education, using active methods with effective participation of everyone involved in the process.
Given our national focus on the opioid epidemic, studies on associations of NMUPD with other health risk exposures among adolescents, such as DV victimization, are timely.
Because most researchers conducting studies on NMUPD among adolescents have relied on emergency department samples or limited geographic areas, researchers conducting a study using nationally representative data to estimate prevalence ratios add needed perspective.
The associations between DV victimization and adolescent substance abuse are well documented.
Because NMUPD is likely to co-occur with other drug use, other substances (ie, cigarettes, alcohol, marijuana, and other illicit drugs) were added to the adjusted models; the prevalence ratios remained significant for the most part, albeit with smaller point estimates, suggesting some unique ways in which NMUPD may be related to violence victimization.
Considering that the bi-directionality of violence is a specific characteristic of the affective-sexual relations between young people, the instruments must be sensitive to evaluate both the violence suffered and perpetrated.
