Annotation: This study adds to research that has explored adolescents’ use of technology to perpetrate dating violence by examining how traditional in-person and cyber abuse are linked over time.
Abstract: Using a sample of 780 diverse adolescents (58 percent female), the study found that traditional and cyber abuse were positively associated, and cyber- abuse perpetration and victimization were correlated at each time point. Cyber abuse perpetration in the previous year (spring 2013) predicted cyber abuse perpetration 1 year later (spring 2014), while controlling for traditional abuse and demographic variables. In addition, physical violence victimization and cyber-abuse perpetration and victimization predicted cyber-abuse victimization the following year. These findings highlight the reciprocal nature of cyber abuse and suggest that victims may experience abuse in multiple contexts. (Publisher abstract modified)
