Using Bronfenbrenner’s Process-Person-Context-Time Model to Conceptualize a School-Based Intervention to Help Prevent Adolescent Intimate Partner Violence
Keywords:Bronfenbrenner, PPCT,, intimate, partner violence, adolescents, intervention
AbstractIntimate Partner Violence (IPV) is a pervasive global issue affecting the health and well-being of adolescents. This study utilized Bronfenbrenner's PPCT theory to investigate the risk factors that contribute to IPV and to help develop a school-based intervention to prevent IPV among adolescents. A number of factors from different levels of the PPCT framework that may impact the efficacy of intervention development are explored. The PPCT model of Bronfenbrenner has the potential to unify IPV propositions in the existing literature into a coherent theoretical framework to interpret and analyze IPV phenomena, generalize various aspects of prevention addressing IPV issues, and guide practical intervention. Consideration is given to the four defining properties of the bioecological theory in proposing implications for school health practices pertaining to addressing IPV issues among adolescents through a school-based intervention.
