The current study used a person-centered approach, latent profile analysis, to identify key configurations (or profiles) of contextual risk and protective factors for dating violence perpetration across the neighborhood, school, friend and family contexts.
The obligations, expectations, trust and norms of any relationship influence the extent to which these relationships enable an individual to develop “social capital”.
Social capital is a strong, supportive network of individuals who provides access to emotional and physical resources which an individual needs to fulfil their goals.
The nature of physical surroundings (including their quality, e.g.
the extent to which open spaces are clean and buildings maintained) can influence the quality of parenting and in turn affect the health and wellbeing of children within that environment.
Australian children who lived in cleaner neighbourhoods were assessed as having better social behaviours than those living in less clean environments.
