Predicting the emergence of sexual violence in adolescence

Ybarra ML, Thompson RE. Predicting the emergence of sexual violence in adolescence. Prev Sci.  Published online July 07, 2017. doi: 10.1007/s11121-017-0810-4. Abstract: This study aims to report the epidemiology of sexual violence (SV) perpetration for both female and male youth across a broad age spectrum. Additionally, the etiology of SV perpetration is examined by identifying prior exposures that predict a first SV perpetration. Six waves of data were collected nationally online, between 2006 and 2012, from 1586 youth between 10 and 21 years of age. Five types of SV were assessed: sexual harassment, sexual assault, coercive sex, attempted rape, and rape. To identify how prior exposures may predict the emergence of SV in adolescence, parsimonious lagged multivariable logistic … [Read more...]
