Building Bright Futures: An Annotated Bibliography on Substance Abuse Prevention for Families with Young Children.
Oshinsky, Carole J.; Goodman, Barbara; Woods, Tryon; Rosensweig, Marjorie A.
There is growing consensus that when substance abuse prevention efforts reach children at an early age, they hold promise for reducing abuse in later years. This 87-item annotated bibliography on substance abuse prevention, developed by the National Program Office of Free to Grow in collaboration with the National Center for Children in Poverty, provides readily accessible information to Head Start grantees, and to the broader Head Start and early childhood communities. Materials are annotated in the following areas: (1) alcohol, tobacco, and other drug abuse prevention research and evaluation; (2) prevention strategies for youth, families, and communities; (3) community organizing strategies; (4) family support, parenting, and parent leadership; and (5) effects and treatment of alcohol, tobacco, and other drug problems. The materials selected for this bibliography emphasize practice over theory, are prevention-oriented rather than focused on treatment, and exclude clinically oriented materials. Materials were published within the past 10 years and are available from a publisher, distributor, or library. Included in the entry for each item are publication and purchasing information and a summary of the item's content. The bibliography concludes with an author/title index and a subject index to facilitate material location. (KB)
