Since emerging adulthood is a critical developmental period and a particularly important one for studying responses to interpersonal victimization that can shape future coping patterns, this study focused on non-college-attending emerging adults to explore their use of help-seeking and satisfaction with resources.
Comparisons were made with their college-attending counterparts. The findings highlight (a) the importance of friends across gender and education levels as a common resource and one perceived as helpful and (b) the large proportion of victims of interpersonal violence who did not seek any help. These results are discussed in connection with future research and policy implications. (publisher abstract modified)
