Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Unlike Western societies, dating violence has not yet been recognized in Korea as social phenomena in terms of research, prevention, and intervention. Recently published empirical data collected from the International Dating Violence Study involving university students in 32 nations indicated high rates of physical violence among dating partners (Straus, 2007). The current study is the first research endeavor to examines dating violence and its correlates among college students in Korea. The “Family and Relationship Experiences and Attitudes among College Students” survey (Gover, Kaukinen, & Fox, 2008) was administered to a sample of 1,400 young adults attending college in Korea and to a sample of 1,500 young adults attending college in America. This study represents a cross-cultural comparison of demographic characteristics, risk factors, and protective factors related to physical violence victimization and perpetration among young adults in dating relationships. Specifically, this analysis examines whether risk and protective factors related to dating violence victimization and perpetration vary across samples. Implications for policy, practice, and research are discussed.
