For Young Women, 'Controlling' Partner Often Abusive, Too
Date:4/7/2011

THURSDAY, April 7 (HealthDay News) -- Young women whose intimate partners try to control them are at increased risk for physical and sexual domestic violence, a new study finds.

It included more than 600 women aged 15 to 24 who were patients at a reproductive health center. Sixty-eight percent reported that a partner exhibited controlling behavior.

The types of controlling behavior reported by the women included: being expected to ask a partner's permission before seeking health care (3.7 percent); having contact with their family restricted (6.3 percent); being ignored or treated indifferently by a partner (24.7 percent); and having a partner try to prevent them from seeing friends (26.5 percent).

"These data demonstrate the high frequency of controlling behaviors in the relationships of adolescents and young adults," concluded Dr. Marina Catallozzi of the Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University in New York City and colleagues.
