Date rape is a widespread problem; however, there is a paucity of methodologically sound intervention studies available. The research that does exist has found contradictory results regarding the effectiveness of different types of intervention programs. This study attempted to address some of the short-comings of previous research and build upon the existing Information A date rape intervention targeting date rape attitudes was evaluated in 88 undergraduate students. The intervention was compared to an equivalent control group. A repeated measures 2 (intervention, control) x 3 (pre-test, post-test, follow-up) MANOVA (multivariate analysis of variance) was used to analyze the data. The MANOVA was significant for the effect of time, F (4, 83) = 2.27, p < .05. Both conditions reported a greater sensitivity to rape-related attitudes over time. Implications for future research are discussed.
