Adult connection is central to positive youth development and has demonstrated a protective effect on violence perpetration, victimization and witnessing. However, few studies examine how the nature of relationships with adults impacts violence exposure. This study examines the associations between supportive family relationships and violence involvement, violence witnessing, and individual and community-level risk and protective factors in urban male youth.
