"Dilemma Discussion in Drug Education" by Edwin Gerler, Jr. describes a 10-session program to help middle school students progress in their reasoning about using drugs."Moral Reasoning in Early Adolescence: Implications for Drug Abuse Prevention" by Phyllis Mohr, Norman Sprinthall, and Edwin Gerler, Jr. presents a study examining adolescent thinking as it relates to judgments about abusing drugs. "Helping Children of Alcoholic Parents: An Elementary School Program" by Ruth Davis, Patricia Johnston, Lena DiCicco, and Alan Orenstein describes a therapeutically oriented alcohol education group in elementary schools to help children cope with family alcoholism and prevent them from abusing alcohol themselves.
