Abstract (Summary)

This study used secondary data from the 2007 Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System database to examine how gender, sexual behaviors, alcohol use and emotional well-being are related to dating violence. The sample consisted of 3,415 Latinos ages 1218 years. The results showed that sexual behaviors and alcohol use are related to teen dating violence. In addition, results showed that the majority of teens who were hit were also sad. Furthermore, there was no significant relationship between gender and being hit.
