Teen dating violence is a growing issue impacting the adolescent experience. Adolescent females are increasingly at risk to perpetrate dating violence. This research examines adolescent risk factors that include substance use, mental health and delinquent behaviors using the National Longitudinal Study for Adolescent Health to develop a model of adolescent female perpetration of dating violence. Research findings demonstrate the need for future research including additional longitudinal studies given the limited relationship between the study variables.
