Dating violence perpetration
These findings demonstrate the continued need to examine female perpetration of dating violence and incorporate these experiences in prevention and intervention efforts.
Dating violence is a serious public health problem. Practitioners who are tasked with developing dating violence prevention strategies should pay particular attention to risk and protective factors for dating violence perpetration that have been established in longitudinal studies.

OBJECTIVES: With our study we aimed to (1) understand what factors uniquely conferred risk for physical and sexual forms of teen dating violence (TDV) perpetration and (2) create a screening algorithm to quantify perpetration risk on the basis of these factors.
This is problematic because prevention programs may then target factors that are merely correlated with dating violence perpetration, and have no causal influence, which could potentially limit the effectiveness of the programs.
In this article, we review the literature on risk and protective factors for adolescent dating violence perpetration and highlight those factors for which temporal precedence has been established by one or more studies.
Self-report measures concerning TDV and associated risk factors were completed annually for 6 years.
For example, childhood physical or sexual victimization is a risk factor for future IPV perpetration and victimization.
