Abstract

This study explored the associations between leader adherence to a relationship education program, participant satisfaction, and participant outcomes (n = 559 participants). Participants were assessed pre, post, and at 6-month follow-up. Participants' satisfaction ratings were positively associated with outcomes. Although adherence ratings were generally high, for participants who reported high levels of satisfaction with the training, there was a negative effect of strict adherence on relational outcomes. For participants who reported low levels of satisfaction with the training, there was a positive effect of strict adherence on relational outcomes. Implications for research and practice are provided.
