Abstract:

     The presence of teen dating violence (TDV) among the adolescent population is becoming recognized as a significant problem in the U.S. and worldwide.  A growing body of evidence has begun to reveal the magnitude of the problem to include not only the negative effects on health throughout life, but also on the severity of the problem which can begin early and continue into adulthood.  The purpose of this project was to determine if an evidence-based TDV prevention program for 7th grade students in a rural middle school was feasible and effective for increasing knowledge and understanding of dating violence and improve problem-solving skills.  The project was guided by the revised version of the model for evidence-based practice change originally developed by Rosswurm and Larrabee (1999).  A dating violence curriculum called Safe Dates, is a school-based program designed to change social norms and improve problem-solving skills (Foshee and Langwick, 2010).  The program was adapted and implemented in a rural school seventh grade class (N=18).  Comparison of the pre and post-test questionnaire’s indicated a trend in raising students’ awareness of what constitutes healthy and abusive dating relationships, its causes and consequences, and their ability to address the problem.  The delivery of the adapted program was feasible and cost effective for the rural school.  Recommendations for implementation in other settings are presented.
