Associations of Teen Dating Violence Victimization with School Violence and Bullying among US High School Students
Vivolo-Kantor, Alana M.; Olsen, Emily O'Malley; Bacon, Sarah
Journal of School Health, v86 n8 p620-627 Aug 2016
Background: Teen dating violence (TDV) negatively impacts health, mental and physical well-being, and school performance. Methods: Data from a nationally representative sample of high school students participating in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)'s 2013 Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) are used to demonstrate associations of physical and sexual TDV with school violence-related experiences and behaviors, including bullying victimization. Bivariate and adjusted sex-stratified regressions assessed relationships between TDV and school violence-related experiences and behaviors. Results: Compared to students not reporting TDV, those experiencing both physical and sexual TDV were more likely to report carrying a weapon at school, missing school because they felt unsafe, being threatened or injured with a weapon on school property, having a physical fight at school, and being bullied on school property. Conclusions: School-based prevention efforts should target multiple forms of violence.
