Abstract: Dr. Michael Lorber - a Research Scientist, Adjunct Professor, and Director of Developmental Research at the Family Translational Research Group at New York University College of Dentistry - and Dr. Amy Smith Slep - a professor and Lab Director of the same group and institution - discuss the role of negative interaction patterns in dating relationships and violence over time in adolescent dating couples. The second set of presenters present research findings on how daily changes in the relational factors such as feelings of jealousy, intimacy, and instrumental supports are associated with dating violence victimization and perpetration in high-risk adolescent females. These presenters are Dr. Megan Bair-Merritt - an Associate Professor in the Department of Pediatrics at Boston University School of Medicine - and Dr. Ty Ridenour, a Developmental Behavioral Epidemiologist in the Behavior and Urban Health Program at RTI International. The last presenter is Kelly Miller, the Executive Director of the Idaho Coalition Against Sexual and Domestic Violence. She oversees the social change and primary prevention strategies on gender violence, with a focus on adolescent relationship abuse and sexual assault. She presents an overview of the possible impact of the research covered in the webinar on primary prevention strategy for adolescent relationship abuse.
