Abstract: Dating violence is of particular concern for adolescents and young adults, especially those of college age. While exact rates are unknown, research indicates that more than 20% of students have experienced intimate partner violence. The present study uses 25 in-depth qualitative interviews to explore the normative boundaries and types of conflict that students find acceptable in intimate partner relationships. Further, the study explores the conditions and beliefs that shape their desire to intervene to provent violence. We find that the tendency to subtley blame the victim is a significant barrier to bystander intervention in such situations.
