Adolescent dating violence (ADV) is a prevalent health problem with significant negative outcomes. Prevention programs have been developed and tested, but are primarily directed at all teens regardless of their level of risk for ADV. Teens who have experienced violence at home have been shown to be at increased risk for ADV. The purpose of this early feasibility study was to determine if teens living in a Battered Women’s shelter with their mothers could be recruited for a study of an intervention utilizing mentoring and motivational interviewing to prevent ADV. The study also examined whether senior nursing students could implement this intervention with fidelity and whether the intervention was acceptable to teens. Findings indicated that teens could be recruited, senior nursing students could implement the intervention with fidelity, and the intervention was acceptable to teens. Findings from this study will be used to develop a pilot study in which the effectiveness of the intervention will be tested.
