With lights shining on their faces, South Kitsap High School students Bailey Nelson and Jessica Bilderback stood back to back.

Reciting lines from a script, Bilderback described the loving relationship she had with her high school boyfriend.

The literature on IPV among adolescents indicates that the rates are similar for the number of girls and boys in heterosexual relationships who report experiencing IPV, or that girls in heterosexual relationships are more likely than their male counterparts to report perpetrating IPV. stated that, unlike domestic violence in general, equal rates of IPV perpetration is a unique characteristic with regard adolescent dating violence, and that this is "perhaps because the period of adolescence, a special developmental state, is accompanied by sexual characteristics that are distinctly different from the characteristics of adult." Wekerle and Wolfe theorized that "a mutually coercive and violent dynamic may form during adolescence, a time when males and females are more equal on a physical level" and that this "physical equality allows girls to assert more power through physical violence than is possible for an adult female attacked by a fully physically mature man." Regarding studies that indicate that girls are as likely or more likely than boys to commit IPV, the authors emphasize that substantial differences exist between the genders, including that girls are significantly more likely than boys to report having experienced severe IPV, such as being threatened with a weapon, punched, strangled, beaten, burned, or raped, and are also substantially more likely than boys to need psychological help or experience physical injuries that require medical help for the abuse, and to report sexual violence as a part of dating violence.

They are also more likely to take IPV more seriously.

By contrast, boys are more likely to report experiencing less severe acts, such as being pinched, slapped, scratched or kicked.

Girls are more likely to report committing less serious forms of IPV, including as a means of self-defense, whereas boys are more likely to report committing more severe acts of IPV, including threats, physical violence and controlling a partner.

For the past few weeks, they and eight of their classmates from the South Kitsap Acting Ensemble and others from Central Kitsap have rehearsed plays the students wrote to educate peers about the prevalence of domestic violence among teens.

They wrote the plays for the Kitsap County Domestic Violence Task Force and its RESPECT Kitsap Youth subcommittee.

Teens and young adults experience the same types of abuse as adults, including: If you or a loved one is in an abusive relationship, please get help.

Intimate partner violence (IPV) has been a well examined and documented phenomenon in adults; however, there has not been nearly as much study on violence in adolescent dating relationships, and it is therefore not as well understood.

The research has mainly focused on Caucasian youth, and there are yet no studies which focus specifically on IPV in adolescent same-sex romantic relationships.

Explain to the group, "There are ten statements hung around the room.

Your challenge is to silently go around the room and place a red dot on the statements you think are false and a green dot on the statements you think are true. Explain in your own words that because the issue of violence is very present in many dating relationships, you want the group to be knowledgeable about the subject.
