Previous research has found that involvement in dating violence during adolescence and early adulthood is associated with increased risk for intimate partner violence (IPV) in later adulthood (e.g.Band-Winterstein and Eisikovits, 2009; Jasinski, 2001; Murphy and O’Leary, 1989; Woffordt et al., 1994).Although the importance of parents and peers for behaviours such as juvenile delinquency is expected to diminish as individuals enter adulthood, these bonds may play a continued role as individuals form relationships and families of their own (Laub and Sampson, 2003).

In this paper, we examine the direct and protective effects of family, peer, and parenting-related support and attachment on frequency of partner violence in adulthood.Very little research has explored the role of protective factors in preventing individuals from perpetrating intimate partner violence, particularly in a longitudinal framework.Our research attempts to address this gap in the literature by asking the following questions: Research has found that IPV peaks in the early 20s and then decreases in the later 20s (Johnson et al., 2015; Shortt et al., 2012).Data from the Rochester Youth Development Study were used to explore these questions through negative binomial regression.Dating violence was statistically significantly related to an increase of adult IPV.
