Dr. Laurie Graham and Colleagues Published in the Lancet Child & Adolescent Health

Assistant Professor Laurie Graham and colleagues have a new paper published in the Lancet Child & Adolescent Health journal. This study examines rigorous global research on adolescent dating violence prevention programs, programs' effects, and gaps in the evidence base on this topic. This systematic literature review of experimental and controlled quasi-experimental program evaluations published before January 1, 2020 located 52 evaluations, 50% of which reported at least one significant preventive effect on at least one behavioral outcome for adolescent dating violence. Across both high-income countries and low-/middle-income countries, findings indicate that more research is needed to elucidate how adolescent dating violence programs work and whether program effects might be generalizable.
