Prevention Research, v5 n1-3 1998
As a service of Integrated Research Services, a non-profit organization, this newsletter reports on many facets of prevention research. Written in direct, accessible language, each issue provides a "snapshot" update on a specific topic. Some articles are reprinted (often in a briefer format) from other publications; others provide a synthesis of research and its applications in a particular area. The 1998 volume comprises three 12-page issues. The focus of Number 1 is "outreach to Hispanic students and their families" and includes the following articles: "Distinctive Traits of Hispanic Students" (J.A. Vasquez), which deals with adapting instruction to student learning characteristics; "School Involvement and Hispanic Parents" (L.M. Espinosa); "Coming of Age Ethnically: Teaching Young Adolescents of Color" (G. Gay); "An Empowerment Prevention Approach for Hispanic Youth" (F.J. Galan). Number 2 is focused on "community prevention models" and includes these articles: "Empowering Communities To Prevent Adolescent Substance Abuse" (T.W. Harachi, C.D. Ayers, J.D. Hawkins, R.F. Catalano, J. Cushing); "Community Readiness: A Tool for Effective Community-Based Prevention" (B.A. Plested, P.J. Thurman, R.W. Edwards, E.R. Oetting); "Project Northland: Outcomes of a Community-Wide Adolescent Alcohol Use Prevention Trial" (C.L. Perry, C.L. Williams).
