Teen Dating Violence Can Lead To Homicide — Girls Are The Most Common Victims

Domestic violence is common among adults, and women are most frequently the victims. In fact, nearly half of women killed by homicide in the United States are killed by their former or current intimate partners. Now a new study finds that this kind of violence also poses a risk to the lives of adolescent girls.

Consequences of Teen Motherhood Can Last for Generations

A child whose mother had her as a teenager is set up to have a tough life. Compared with peers whose parents gave birth later, this child is at a greater risk of being born prematurely, of struggling to acquire basic skills such as literacy and self-control, and of underperforming in school.

“What our research really demonstrates is the value of supporting young mothers when they have children in adolescence,” Dr. Wall-Wieler says. This support “doesn’t just improve their own lives—it also improves the lives of their children and the lives of their grandchildren”.

ACEs Are Different Than Child Trauma

Legislators, caregivers, and the media increasingly recognize that childhood adversity poses risks to individual health and well-being. The original Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) Study has helped raise public awareness about this critical public health issue. However, as the use of ACEs questionnaires for identifying potentially harmful childhood experiences has gained popularity, it is important to understand how ACEs differ from other commonly used terms, including childhood adversity, trauma, and toxic stress.

What It’s Like to Date When You Have A Chronic Illness

Dating is never easy. It doesn’t come with a guide that tells you when to kiss for the first time, or when it’s too early to discuss your exes. And there’s definitely no guide on how to date while living with a chronic disease. Whether it’s broaching the subject to a potential partner, helping your partner understand the best way to support you, or offering your partner helpful tips to maintain their own physical and mental health while supporting you, there’s a variety of factors that can make dating with a chronic condition difficult and, at times, even scary, but it’s not an uncommon situation.

Sexual Intercourse Precedes Partner Violence in Adolescent Romantic Relationships

This study examined whether psychological or physical violence between adolescent romantic partners is associated with the sexual intercourse status of the couple. The researchers found that violent victimization was more likely to occur in romantic relationships that included sexual intercourse. In relationships characterized by both sexual intercourse and violence, sexual intercourse was significantly more likely to precede violence rather than the reverse, regardless of type of violent act.
