’” With those reports, she says, “we can literally see on the day before or after a violent episode how the young women report feeling about their partner.” Although it is too early in the analysis to be definitive, the pediatrician says her research appears to support the premise that romantic relationships of adolescents look different from romantic adult relationships, and that, among other things, adolescents may be more likely to view abuse as a normal part of a relationship, continuing to feel attached to their partners and/or view some of the abusive actions as evidence of love.
Those are crucial distinctions, Bair-Merritt says, because interventions that focus mostly on safety planning and resource connection may not be sufficient.
That abuse can take many forms, from sexual exploitation to physical violence to controlling intimidation to hurtful mind games, and it can start at age 11 or 12.

Rothman says it’s too early in their data analysis to claim success, but she is encouraged by what she sees.
She also has evidence from a smaller randomized pilot study of the interview intervention indicating that people subjected to the intervention were more likely than others to use healthy behaviors (talking to friend about concerns before going to a party, asking a buddy to step in if he sees you getting upset or jealous, talking to a doctor about substance abuse) to guard against being abusive.
