A Gendered Approach to Adolescent Dating Violence: Conceptual and Methodological Issues
White, Jacquelyn W.
Psychology of Women Quarterly, v33 n1 p1-15 Mar 2009
This article argues that adolescent dating violence should be considered within a social ecological model that embeds the individual within the context of adolescent friendships and romantic relationships, as well as family and other social institutions that shape a young person's sense of self. Two additions to the model are recommended. First, gender is considered in the model at the individual, interactional and structural levels. Second, identity is treated as a meta-construct, affecting and being affected by all levels of the social ecology. Examples from research are presented and recommendations for future research are offered.
