Teen Dating Violence Among Latin@ Youth: Research-Based Facts

General Material
Published Date
January, 2019

To provide insight into the experience of teen dating violence (TDV) for Latin@ youth, Casa de Esperanza reviewed 10 years (2008-2017) of academic research that examines TDV with exclusively Latin@ samples. This review includes research published about Latin@ adolescents in the United States between the ages of 13-17 years old and middle or high school students. It revealed a wide range of rates on the prevalence of TDV among Latin@ youth and identified a growing body of research that examines several potential individual and family level risk and protective factors. There continues to be a large gap in strengths-based research and research that centers the experiences of Latin@ youth.
