    This study examines Teenage Dating Violence (TDV). TDV presents itself in many forms which this study will define under the following headings, physical, sexual and emotional abuse. Furthermore, the factors that may predict TDV will be examined, the aim of which is to ascertain how professionals can better identify victims and perpetrators and intervene in order to safeguard, influence behaviour change and prevent the violence continuing into adult relationships. A variety of predictive factors have been uncovered through research and therefore to ensure clarification for the reader, factors will be broken down under the headings of psychological, behavioural, peer influence and environmental. This study will further discuss interventions used in the prevention and reduction of TDV including Universal Services, Early Intervention and Late Prevention. The study will conclude with the limitations that this study presented along with recommendations for social work practice.
