[tags: Teen Violence] - "Teen violence refers to harmful behaviors that can start early and continue into young adulthood" (Teen Violence). Questions like these do not have straight answers; instead, they seek out people's differing opinions.
Approximately 27.3% of women and 11.5% of men in the U. have experienced contact sexual violence, physical violence, or stalking by an intimate partner and reported at least one measured impact related to these or other forms of violence in that relationship.
The following list describes some, but not all, of the consequences of IPV.
Women with a history of IPV are more likely to display behaviors that present further health risks (e.g., substance abuse, alcoholism, suicide attempts) than women without a history of IPV.
IPV is associated with a variety of negative health behaviors.
Several health conditions associated with intimate partner violence may be a direct result of the physical violence (for example, bruises, knife wounds, broken bones, traumatic brain injury, back or pelvic pain, headaches).Other conditions are the result of the impact of intimate partner violence on the cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, endocrine and immune systems through chronic stress or other mechanisms.
