“Risks in Adolescence That Lead to Intimate Partner Violence in Young Adulthood”  – NIJ

“The National Institute of Justice (NIJ) has a long history of research in intimate partner violence and recognizes the importance of understanding the factors during adolescence that put individuals at risk for intimate partner violence as adults.
