Analyzing the effectiveness of a program aimed at preventing partner violence among adolescents
Analyzing the ffectiveness of a program
The purpose of this study was to test the effectiveness of a program aimed at preventing partner violence among adolescents. The effect of the program on perceptions and attitudes toward intimate partner violence was examined with the pretest-posttest quasi-experimental method with a control group. The study group consists of 10 volunteers at the age of 18, who had not previously participated in any group study on intimate partner violence. The program consists of eight sessions; the Acceptance of Dating Violence Scale and Attitudes Towards Dating Violence Scales were applied to the experimental and control groups as a pre-test and post-test. In addition, a rating scale and process analysis were used in each session to support quantitative data; in the last session, qualitative questions were also applied to the participants. Posttest scores of the participants in the experimental group indicated that the acceptance of dating violence decreased at all levels compared to the control group.
