During the four-year period following the intervention, there were five pregnancies among the 157 students who participated in Discovery Dating compared to 32 pregnancies among the 136 students who did NOT participate in Discovery Dating.
We believe these findings are largely due to the impact of Discovery Dating on youth’s increased personal agency.
Individuals with high levels of personal agency are more likely to understand the consequences of their actions, be more resilient to new challenges, be better able to constructively problem solve, and be less likely to pass on the hurt and pain of oppressive behaviors.
Discovery Dating is currently being applied with youth and adults as a broad-spectrum intervention tool to develop decisional skills to reduce risk behaviors including teen pregnancy, violence, substance abuse and unhealthy relationships.
We honor the wisdom and strength of domestic abuse survivors across the lifespan.
Our mission is achievable through survivor-centered work that includes strategic partnerships and collaboration.
