This study examined the stability of physical and sexual intimate partner violence (IPV) perpetration from adolescence to emerging adulthood among sexual minorities.
Adolescents who identified as a sexual minority (N=135; 71.1 percent female; mean age=15.02, standard deviation=.77; 34.1 percent African-American/Black, 26.7 percent White, 22.2 percent Hispanic) from southeast Texas were assessed annually for 6 years on their IPV perpetration. Structural equation modeling demonstrated that physical IPV perpetration was modestly stable across years 1-4 (24.6 percent, 24.6 percent, 26.4 percent, and 21.6 percent, respectively), decreased in year 5 (18.6 percent), and increased in year 6 (24.5 percent). The stability of sexual IPV perpetration was high across all 6 years (14.3 percent, 13 percent, 14.9 percent, 10.8 percent, 12.4 percent, and 14.4 percent). (publisher abstract modified)
