Researchers Amanda Cissner and Lama Ayoub conducted an evaluation to see whether a program already shown to decrease dating violence among Canadian high school students would also be effective with U. Cissner and Ayoub found that an adaptation of this program for middle school students did not reduce dating violence behavior generally among middle school students.It was, however, beneficial for high-risk students, particularly those already involved in dating violence, and reduced other negative behaviors, such as bullying, especially in schools where it was implemented well.

This article is derived from the forthcoming report “A Review of Research on Criminal Victimization and First Nations, Métis and Inuit Peoples 1990 to 2008,” which is an update of the original report entitled Aboriginal people were three times more likely to have been victimized compared to non-Aboriginal people (319 incidents versus 101 incidents per 1,000 population) (Brzozowski et al. These statistics confirm that Aboriginal people are disproportionately represented as victims of crime in Canada.

Perpetrators of violence against Aboriginal people are most often other members of the Aboriginal community such as spouses, relatives, or friends of the victim, and as such, victimization among Aboriginal people in Canada is often regarded as a mirror image of Aboriginal offending.
