dc.description.abstract Emotional dating violence is a prevalent phenomenon among youth; however, there is a gap in the literature regarding the ways that youth define emotional dating violence, and racialized youth are particularly underrepresented in current research. The purpose of this study was to examine how racialized students from a Canadian university define emotional dating violence, using a qualitative approach. The data was gathered through an online survey. Thematic analysis was conducted and yielded four themes and six subthemes: verbal displays, evoked victims’ emotions (worthlessness, unhappiness, fear, and guilt), power imbalance (domination and isolation) and manipulation. The comparison of these themes with previous studies shows more similarities than differences, which suggests that definitions of dating violence may be universal. The implications for therapists and the future directions are discussed. en_US
