  • Description:
    Dating Matters® was developed as a comprehensive public health approach to the primary prevention of teen dating violence (TDV). It has been developed based on best available science and practice, and utilizes a combination of evidence-informed and evidence- based strategies. Each component was selected for specific purpose and reinforces messages by giving complementary skills to youth, their peers, parents, and educators, and supports these skills with policy. Below each programmatic component of Dating Matters® is described in addition to the rationale and risk factors targeted by the strategy.

    The specific focus of Dating Matters® on 11-14 year old youth in high risk urban communities was developed to stop dating violence before it begins. Evidence suggests that middle school youth in an urban environment may be at increased risk for dating violence; however, to date, there has been little evidence about what works to prevent dating violence in urban communities with high crime and economic disadvantage. Dating Matters® seeks to address gaps in research and practice with emphasis on developing and imple- menting TDV prevention strategies specific for these communities.
