Drs. Garneau-Rosner and Herzog Receive $6.24 Million Grant

ShowMe Healthy Relationships (SMHR) is a partnership between the University of Missouri Extension, University of Missouri Department of Human Development and Family Science, and three Community Family Agencies who have come together to help singles and couples have happy and healthy relationships. The program has provided training in healthy relationship skills to 1,127 adult couples and 1,770 singles across Missouri since 2015. Because of the program’s success so far, the college was awarded a new 5-year, $6.24 million research grant from the Administration for Children and Families to continue this work. The new grant will focus on reaching single adults who want healthier romantic relationships in the future. Participants in the 8-week program will learn qualities that make a good partner, how to communicate and maintain a partnership, and how topics like parenting, finances and personal well-being are related to healthy relationship choices. The researchers aim to enroll 2,800 adults and follow them for 12 months after completing the program to learn more about the longer-term impacts on their future relationship experiences. Congratulations to Dr. Chelsea Garneau-Rosner and Dr. Melissa Herzog for their continued success in implementing this valuable program.
