CARIDADE, Sónia  and  MACHADO, Carla. Violence in juvenile dating relationships: An overview of theory, research and practice. Psicologia [online]. 2013, vol.27, n.1, pp.91-113. ISSN 0874-2049.

Research on violence in intimate relationships began to privilege marriage as the main object of study, neglecting dating relationships and occasional juvenile and homosexual relations. Despite this delayed interest in the study of juvenile violence in intimate relationships, we have witnessed a progressive proliferation of studies in this area. It is in this context that emerges the project “Violence in juvenile dating relationships”, whose main goal was to reduce the gap of knowledge about the extent and severity of this phenomenon. In this article, we proceed to a broad overview of the national and international research and the theoretical knowledge produced on this subject, describe the research project, analyze and discuss the results as well as their implications for prevention.

Keywords : Intimate Violence; Juvenile Relationships; Prevention; Attitudes.
