Friendships & Dating is a train-the-trainer program; community agency personnel facilitate the program to groups of teens and adults in agency and community settings.
Friendships & Dating is a 10-week long program made up of 20 sessions.
Most of the handful of programs that have been empirically investigated are school-based and use a group format.
Teen dating violence can be prevented, especially when there is a focus on reducing risk factors as well as fostering protective factors, and when teens are empowered through family, friends, and others (including role models such as teachers, coaches, mentors, and youth group leaders) to lead healthy lives and establish healthy relationships.
It is important to create spaces, such as school communities, where the behavioral norms are not tolerant of abuse in dating relationships.
Facilitators receive The Friendships & Dating Manual with detailed materials organized to easily conduct sessions.
The manual delineates learning and behavioral objectives, materials needed, session activities, scripts for teaching each concept and skill, and experiential community activities.
