In an attempt to better identify what factors predict TDV, David Rosenfield of the Southern Methodist University’s Department of Psychology in Dallas, Texas, recently led a study that looked at history of TDV and risk for TDV in a sample of 92 teens involved in the juvenile justice system.
Lynn anticipated the pain that would come at any moment.
Rosenfield found that the teens were more likely to commit TDV if they had recently experienced stress.
However, the cumulative effects of stress had a significant effect on TDV whereas long-term stress seemed to elevate the likelihood of TDV, even in the absence of recent TDV. The preceding article was solely written by the author named above.
Even after the survivor finds safety and supportive people, she may continue to use these coping strategies until she realizes they are neither necessary nor helpful anymore.
At that point, the survivor may be interested in receiving counseling or other support services.
