A Primary Prevention Drug Education Program for School Children: An Attempt at Evaluation.
Lopez, Thomas S.; Starkey, Kathryn T.
Recently programs for primary prevention of drug and alcohol abuse have centered in the affective domain. Value Sharing training for teachers is intended to change classrooms and students. Fifth and sixth graders were given pre/post measures of self-esteem and risk taking attitudes. Value clarification behaviors of teachers were analyzed. Children grew in self-esteem and had a more positive attitude toward risk taking. Value sharing activities did not increase after teacher training. (Author)
