Youth Violence

The research area that I am interested in is that of youth violence in Washington DC. I am interested in this area because youth violence has become a major concern in Washington DC, evident with the increase in the number of youths arrested and convicted for serious violent crimes. For these issues to be addressed in Washington DC and other parts of the country, a study needs to be carried out to identify the cause of youth violence.

Research Problem

There has been an increase in the causes of youth violence in Washington DC, which has resulted in the state and different researchers trying to understand the causes of youth violence and how these causes can be addressed to reduce the causes of youth violence.

Statement of Purpose

The purpose of this research is to determine the relationship between youth violence in Washington DC and child abuse and domestic violence and how the issue of child abuse and domestic violence can be addressed.

Research Questions

1. Does early childhood abuse result in youth violence?

2. What is the relationship between domestic violence and youth violence?

3. How can the issue of child abuse and domestic abuse be addressed to prevent further cases of youth violence as a result of these issues?


The first hypothesis for this research is that early childhood abuse can result in cases of youth violence. The second hypothesis is that there is a direct link between domestic violence and youth violence. The last hypothesis is that there are gender differences in terms of how males and females are impacted by child abuse and domestic violence as they develop into violent youth.


The research participants will be obtained through an advertisement put up on random schools in Washington DC. An equal number of males and females will be in the research, which will test and verify the third hypothesis on how females and males are impacted by child abuse and domestic violence as they develop into violent youth. The participants will be eligible to participate in the research after informed consent has been obtained from their parents or legal guardians (Ahern, 2012). The school teachers will also be involved in the study since it will examine the participants’ behaviors from preschool through adolescence. The information collected from these participants will be private and confidential unless there will be a legal requirement to share this information or the participants have given out consent for their information to be disclosed.

Design and Materials

The quasi-experimental research design will be used during the research (Price et al., 2015). The materials that will be needed will be three types of questionnaires. The first questionnaire will collect information on the participants’ family and home environment, while the second questionnaire will gather information regarding youth violence victimization. The last questionnaire will collect information on youth violence penetration. 


The research will start after informed consent has been obtained from the participants of the study. The researchers will administer the first questionnaire, collecting information about the family and home environment. The questionnaire will contain 45 questions to help determine if the participants have been exposed to child abuse or domestic violence during their childhood. The second and third questionnaires will be administered after ten years, and it will have thirty questions that will be self-administered to determine if the participants are victims or perpetrators of youth violence. Statistical analysis will then be carried out by applying bivariate regression methods to help determine the link between child abuse and domestic violence with various forms of violence. Quantitative research will then be carried out to help determine how domestic violence and child abuse can be prevented to prevent future incidents of youth violence.
