Dating violence in adolescents
They found that when broad inclusion criteria for TDV were used (ie, any physical act), male rates of victimization were nearly double that of female rates.
However, when TDV was defined more restrictively as a physical act that was fear-inducing or injurious, the victimization rate for girls was twice that of boys.
CONCLUSIONS: Contrary to data suggesting that girls experience far more sexual TDV and injury, these data suggest that at specific times during adolescence, boys among high-risk populations may be equally at risk for victimization.
We found a small increase in knowledge but there was evidence of substantial , CINAHL, Psyc INFO, six other databases and a trials register on .
When comparing the frequency of TDV across adolescence, boys reported more sexual TDV victimization at younger ages, and girls demonstrated a trend toward more victimization at older ages.
Likewise, younger boys reported more fear/intimidation and injury perpetration and injury victimization than younger girls.
