Abstract
Purpose: To assess the characteristics of offenders and victims of youth dating violence.
Methods: Data were drawn from the second wave (2015-16) of the GenerationFRee study, a Swiss longitudinal in-school survey including 2627 youths aged 15-22. Dating violence was defined as psychological (insults and threats), physical (to push and hit) or sexual (to insist and to force to have sex) and to happen in an intimate relationship. Participants were divided into four groups: non-violent (64.7%), offender-only (7.1%), victim-only (3.9%), victim-offender (20.1%).They were compared according to demographic, family and academic data, emotional well-being, pubertal timing and risk behaviors (current smoking, alcohol misuse, cannabis and illegal drugs use, violent and antisocial behaviors). All significant variables (p<.05) at the bivariate level were included in a multinomial regression analysis using non-violent as the reference.
