Triad is proud to be working on a game-based initiative to help curb teen dating violence. This game-based program will target youth and will be made available for use with cohorts of users in schools and as a stand-alone tool for teens and young adults. Game-based learning is an effective medium for engaging students in serious topics, and we are eager to leverage its utility for this project.
In essence, this game-based program will provide youth with knowledge and strategies for recognizing positive and negative behavior in forming relationships. Ideally this will empower them to build healthy relationships, not perpetrate violence, and disengage from relationships where they are victimized.
We are working with globally recognized researchers for this project, including Dr. Dorothy Espelage of the University of Florida. As we release additional details, we’ll update with new blog posts related to this project.
