Published Date
January, 2013

This is a 2.5-hour family dinner model where youth and parents separately learn about dating abuse and strategies for improving parent/caregiver-youth communication, including communication about dating abuse. Youth and parents then share a meal and practice communication skills. Targeted to parents and youth in middle school, it can be adapted for older audiences.
