What are the differences between LN v2.1 Classic and LN EBP?

You now have a new tool in your tool kit! An innovative approach to teen pregnancy prevention that appeals to older youth.

Love Notes was included in the federal Office of Adolescent Health’s Evidence Based Program list based on statistically significant decreases in sexual activity, increases in contraceptive use, and avoidance of pregnancy.

Love Notes, a comprehensive healthy relationship education curriculum written by Marline E. Pearson, teaches young people how to build healthy romantic relationships as well as how to preventing dating violence and avoid unprotected sex.

Love Notes (classic) was condensed to 12 hours of key instruction and evaluated in CHAMPS (Creating Healthy Adolescents through Meaningful Prevention Services), a 5-year $4.8 million study through the Kent School of Social Work, University of Louisville. Anita Barbee, Ph.D. was the Principal Investigator.

The study consisted of a cluster-randomized trial involving over 1,400 youth. Stringent data analyses examined data from 933 at-risk, low-income youth including urban, foster, refugee, and immigrant participants who were recruited from 23 community-based organizations.

Note: To assure fidelity with the Evidence Based Program Model (LN-EBP) of Love Notes, facilitators must be trained by a Dibble Master Trainer or a Dibble Certified Trainer from their organization before teaching the program.  The Dibble Institute offers both LN-EBP Training of Educators and Training of Trainers throughout the year either at your organization or at a Dibble site.
