Courtship Violence among College Students

Abstract

Recent concern with family violence has focused on child abuse and wife battering, while other forms have been relatively neglected. A need to recognize and focus on violence that occurs during the dating and courtship period is suggested. Descriptive information on the extent and nature of courtship violence found in a sample of college students is reported. The significance of the figures, the "idealized" nature of both popular and professional accounts of the dating and courtship period, and the need for further work in this area are discussed.
