Is Marriage Good for Your Health?
Here’s a chicken-or-egg problem: Research shows married people enjoy better health. But why? Is it because marriage is good for your health and encourages healthier behavior, or because healthier individuals are more likely to get married? A study published in the September issue of the journal Personal Relationships, written by Cortez and colleagues, investigates the link between being healthy or unhealthy and getting married.
Relationships and Social and Emotional SKills Related to Academic Achievement
Early data from a new Child Trends evaluation of youthCONNECT, an integrated student supports initiative aimed at high school students, shows that strong relationships with adults and social and emotional skills are associated with academic success. Additionally, students who reported having an adult with whom they could discuss educational and career goals reported engaging in fewer risky behaviors.
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.
