We are pleased to share that Pallavi Visvanthan, PhD, Melissa Richmond, PhD, and Chandra Winder, MPA, along with their co-author Cynthia Hoskins Koenck, BA, CEAP, CPS II, from Peer Assistance Services, Inc., had a manuscript recently accepted for publication in the peer-reviewed journal Family Process. The manuscript discusses findings from the evaluation of the Healthy Relationships Program that served individuals from diverse backgrounds in community-based settings. Pre-post analyses indicated that the program was beneficial. Single participants reported increased belief in ability to obtain healthy relationships and partnered individuals reported increased relationship quality, relationship confidence, and reduced conflict. Regardless of relationship status, participants also reported improvement in general relationship and communication skills.
