This article reports on a study conducted by the authors to examine the sexual and reproductive health consequences of teen dating abuse, including the overlap between victimization and perpetration, among youth of color living in urban, low-income communities. Findings from this study demonstrating strong correlations between teen dating abuse victimization, perpetration, sexual health outcomes, and risk behaviors suggest a strong need to intervene through a range of prevention platforms where at-risk youth are served.
