A study of teens at three New England high schools highlights the need for sexual aggression training programs to encourage intervention, according to researchers at the University of New Hampshire. Nearly 94 percent of those surveyed by the university's Carsey School of Public Policy said they had the opportunity in the past year to intervene in instances of dating and sexual aggression but more than one-third said they were reluctant to do so. Reasons ranged from not wanting to fuel the drama to fear of repercussions.
