The OKDHS Practice and Policy Lecture Series hosts Dr. Scott Stanley on December 10th to discuss the results of a long-term study of the effectiveness of marriage education. Dr. Stanley has been involved in the research, development and refinement of the marriage education program PREP, Prevention and Relationship Enhancement Program, for more than 30 years.
Dr. Scott Stanley is a research professor and co-director of the Center for Marital and Family Studies at the University of Denver. He has published widely with research interests including commitment, communication, conflict, confidence, risk factors for divorce, prevention of marital distress and couple development. The OK Policy Blog previously featured a guest blog post from Scott Stanley about the Family Expectations Program, which is part of the Oklahoma Marriage Initiative. We also posted an OK Policy Roundtable on whether or not the state of Oklahoma should be promoting marriage as a solution to poverty.
