Adolescent and Young Adults’ Relationship Expectations and Experiences
Americans today are increasingly waiting longer to marry, if they marry at all. Are today’s young people no longer interested in forming families? What types of relationships they are experiencing?
In this webinar, Drs. Karen Benjamin Guzzo and Wendy D. Manning will discuss preliminary findings of new work from the Marriage Strengthening and Research Dissemination (MAST) Center on adolescents’ and young adults’ relationship expectations and experiences, drawing on a review of recent research as well as new analyses of the National Survey of Family Growth.
Me & My Emotions for Teens!
Moved by a desire to reduce youth’s toxic stress and increase their resilience, The Dibble Institute, in partnership with the ArtCenter College of Design and author Carolyn Curtis, PhD, is releasing Me & My Emotions—a new, free adaptation of our beloved Mind Matters Curriculum. This resource is available at no charge on a mobile-friendly website.
Me & My Emotions invites teens to slow down, check in with themselves, and develop practices that align with the same skill sets available in Mind Matters.
Check it out and share it widely today!

Single Parenting and Today’s Family
Today single parent families have become even more common than the so-called “nuclear family” consisting of a mother, father and children. Today we see all sorts of single parent families: headed by mothers, fathers, and even by a grandparent raising their grandchildren. Single parent families deal with many other pressures and potential problem areas that other families may not face.
Dibble works with younger teens to teach them healthy relationship skills early in their lives.
Dibble’s materials teach teens and young adults how to be successful in friendships, dating, and love.
