SALDIVIA, Claudia  and  VIZCARRA, Beatriz. Drug abuse and dating violence in university students in southern Chile. Ter Psicol [online]. 2012, vol.30, n.2, pp. 43-49. ISSN 0718-4808.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-48082012000200004.

The present investigation aimed to describe the relationship between drug use and dating violence in university students of southern Chile. A sample of205 Students completed two instruments: a questionnaire for detecting problematic use of alcohol and other drugs and a questionnaire for detecting intimate partner violence in young people. Results show a significant and direct relationship between drugs and alcohol use and dating violence. Regarding consumption and types of violence, a significant association between consumption and being victim of psychological and physical violence was found. Results are discussed as to their theoretical and practical implications, indicating the limitations of this research and suggestions for future studies.

Keywords : Drug use; dating violence; university students.
