Assessing the effects of the dating violence prevention

The researchers selected a sample of families through a nationwide telephone process.Eligible families were required to speak English and have at least one child between the ages of 13 and 15.These outcomes included life skills; attitudes/beliefs about gender roles; acceptance of antisocial, delinquent, and violent behavior; acceptance of jealous behaviors; healthy sexuality; and negative assertion.Between 20, approximately 176 students were taught the Safe Dates curriculum.Safe Dates is one of the most widely disseminated teen dating violence prevention programs in the United States.Currently, Tu Casa is implementing the Safe Dates curriculum in 1 middle school and 1 high school in San Luis Valley.According to the 2013 national Youth Risk Behavior Survey, among students (9th to 12th grade) who dated, approximately 21% of female students and 10% of male students had experienced some form of teen dating violence in the past year.These students were more likely to have attempted suicide, been in a physical fight, carried a weapon, and been electronically bullied, and to currently use alcohol and drugs than those who had not experienced dating violence in the last 12 months.

The curriculum includes 10 in-school sessions with didactic learning and interactive skill-building activities, a school play, and a poster contest.To determine the effectiveness of the SVP, CDPHE partnered with Colorado State University to develop a tool to measure the overall impact of the implementation efforts of grantees.The survey tool measured several outcomes before and after implementation of prevention programs, including the Safe Dates curriculum.Among those educated in the curriculum, 47 students completed both the pre and post-test surveys, which showed statistically significant positive change for the following outcomes: life skills; rejection of antisocial, delinquent, and violent behavior; and rejection of jealous behavior. Several factors are considered to have contributed to the success of Tu Casa’s application of the Safe Dates curriculum in Colorado.
