History and Implementation of the Federally Funded HMRE Grants
Healthy Marriage and Relationship Education (HMRE) programs are designed to teach youth and adult individuals—as well as unmarried, married, or coparenting couples—how to communicate effectively, manage conflict, identify signs of an unhealthy relationship, and apply other skills for developing and maintaining healthy relationships. This brief draws from a mix of evaluation and descriptive studies that highlight implementation findings that inform the HMRE initiative to promote the well-being of children and families.
Root of Teen Empathy Begins with Secure Relationships at Home
Teenagers who have close, secure relationships with their families are more likely to extend empathy to their peers, according to a new study. More specifically, when teens feel safe, supported by and connected to parents or other adult caregivers, they are better equipped to pass the empathy they receive on to others.
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.
