Description

Latin America is one of the regions in the world with the highest rates of intimate partner violence and homicide. Research suggests that interventions with youth are effective at strengthening social-emotional capacities that can prevent teen dating violence (TDV) and subsequently intimate partner violence as adults. However, if tested with youth in Latin America it remains unclear which measures of TDV would most accurately measure intervention effectiveness. By conducting research, the objectives of this study are to systematically: (1) identify and review measures of teen dating violence and intimate partner dating violence and (2) determine which measure is most appropriate for teen populations in low- and middle-income countries in Latin America. A systematic search of LILACS, EBSCO, and Psychinfo databases was conducted, following PRISMA guidelines. Peer-reviewed articles from the last 20 years were eligible if they measured any form of partner or dating violence among teen, (10-19 years old) girls and boys residing in any country. To identity qualitative and quantitative studies that used measures of teen dating violence (I.e., Sexual, physical emotional, verbal, mental, relational aggression, threatening behavior, and stalking). Investigates psychosocial correlates of SSC among adult Latina women with a stable male partner. Pertinent data were abstracted, and the quality of individual studies was appraised. Determinations of the most appropriate measures for LMIC in Latin America were made based on the psychometric performance of measures among teen populations like those in LMIC such as Latin America. Though study results are in progress and no formal data has been published, study results indicate the most promising measures of TDV for use with youth in Latin America. Prior to use of the measures in interventional research, their adequacy should be determined with a rigorous psychometric evaluation should be conducted with a sample of youth from multiple countries across Latin America.
