Nan Stein, Ed.D. and Bruce Taylor, Ph.D.: Shifting Boundaries: Findings from a Youth Dating Violence Prevention Program Evaluation in NYC Middle Schools
Lunchtime Seminar October 27, 2011 (54:18 min.)

Nan Stein, Ed.D., Senior Research Scientist, and Bruce Taylor, Ph.D., Principal Research Scientist, NORC at the University of Chicago, discuss the results and implications from the Dating Violence Prevention Programs in Public Middle Schools research project. This project, funded by the National Institute of Justice and conducted in 30 New York City middle schools (6th& 7th grades), looked at precursors to teen dating violence, in particular sexual harassment, peer violence, and adolescent relationship violence. This study was the first to use a rigorous scientific methodology with such a young population; most teen dating violence projects look at older students. Schools were assigned to one of four conditions: (1) a classroom-based intervention, (2) a building intervention, (3) both classroom and building interventions, or (4) a no-treatment control group.  Researchers collected program evaluation data from about 2,700 students who completed surveys administered before the intervention, immediately afterwards, and about six months post-intervention.

WCW Lunchtime Seminar Series

    • Wellesley Centers for Women (WCW) scholars offer seminar and panel presentations during which they share their work with other scholars and the general public. The WCW Lunchtime Seminar Series, for example, offers residents and visitors to the Greater Boston area the opportunity to hear, in person, about work by WCW researchers and program staff. Other special events bring these researchers and program staff into communities for special presentations to the Centers' many constituents.
