Abstract/ Summary

The latest dating violence survey of a small random sampling of UMaine undergraduates indicates no significant decline in courtship acts of violence over the past 15 years, despite heightened public awareness and prevention programs on the UMaine campus and throughout society. The study is conducted on a five-year basis by students in Professor Robert Milardo's Research Methods in Child Development and Family Relations course. The information is revealing and consistent with national data of dating violence among college undergraduates, according to research project coordinators Wendy Weise and Alisa Meggison, graduate students in the College of Education & Human Development.
