Dating violence is a prevalent problem in high school students.Previous research has found that anger expression styles and acceptance of violence beliefs mediate the relationship between experiencing family violence and dating violence perpetration.
The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between perceived inter-parental conflict and students’ academic adjustment among first year student in Hamadan University of Medical Sciences, Iran.
395 first year students aged below 19 years old were selected through a convenience producer in year 2012.
Data were collected by a structured questionnaire including, socio-demography, inter-parental conflict and academic adjustment.
Data were analyzed using Pearson correlation and multiple regression analysis.
Although partner violence frequently begins during adolescence, few dating violence studies involve adolescents and even fewer report findings by gender.
This study examines gender differences in adolescent dating violence.Data are from self-administered questionnaires completed by 81% of the adolescents in the eighth and ninth grades in a primarily rural school district in North Carolina.Surveys were administered to 204 high school students (aged 15 to 17) from Monterrey, Mexico.Regression analyses revealed that anger control and acceptance of violence beliefs, mediated the relationship between interparental conflict and dating violence perpetration.These results support the use of family-based interventions that challenge acceptance of violence beliefs and teach anger control techniques in Mexican teens.Studies of adults report inconsistent findings as to whether males or females are more likely to use violent behaviors toward their partner.
