Facteurs de risque associés à la violence subie dans les relations amoureuses: Méta-analyse explorant les spécificités selon différents contextes de vulnérabilité

Risk factors for victimization in romantic relationships: Meta-analysis investigating specificities based on divers vulnerability contexts

According to recent findings, a significant number of adolescents are likely to experience dating violence (DV). A complete understanding of risk and protective factors linked to DV will help guide prevention programs and more importantly develop innovative approaches. Thus, this review aims to document risk factors of DV, including interpersonal traumas history and peer-related factors. Also, this literature review will provide the opportunity to explore risk factors unique to two vulnerable groups: youths who reported child sexual abuse and sexual-minority youths. Various databases of published scientific research will be used to select studies from preselected keywords, between the years 2000 to 2015. A meta-analysis will allow the identification of effect sizes for each group of factors. The results will help formulate  recommendations for researchers, professionals, policy makers, program planners and partners of the Action concertée preoccupied by dating violence. These researches are funded by the Fonds de recherche du Québec – Société et Culture (FRQ-SC) through the Programme de recherche sur la violence conjugale (Actions concertées).
