Relationship Dynamics and Teen Dating Violence

Marina M. Mendoza, Carrie Mulford
National Institute of Justice


Romantic relationships can be defining milestones and important learning opportunities in adolescence. Dating partners uniquely shape these dating relationships. Previous research efforts have focused on understanding the risk factors for teen dating violence (TDV) at the individual level; however, the context of the relationship, specifically relationship dynamics, may provide additional information about the risk for and protection against TDV.

Although romantic relationships are a common part of adolescence, unfortunately, not all of these relationships are healthy. A substantial percentage of dating teens report experiencing physical (18 percent), psychological (60 percent), or sexual (18 percent) violence in their relationships within the previous year. Violence and abuse in adolescent dating relationships can have a wide range of short- and long-term negative effects for both victims and perpetrators.2 Teen dating violence, a well-recognized term, describes a range of abusive behaviors that preteens, adolescents, and young adults experience in the context of a past or present romantic or dating relationship. These behaviors include physical and sexual violence, stalking, and psychological abuse.
