Toronto Star: Parents have a key role to play in teaching healthy relationship skills

A research study by Ernest Jouriles in collaboration with others in the SMU Department of Psychology is cited in a Nov. 5 article in the Toronto Star. Journalist Ann Douglas elaborates on the study in her article about the way parents make a difference when it comes to encouraging their children to make healthy relationship choices. The study, "Teens' experiences of harsh parenting and exposure to severe intimate partner violence: Adding insult to injury in predicting teen dating violence," was published in April in the journal "Psychology of Violence."
