Hispanic Journal of Behavioral Sciences, v21 n2 p186-98 May 1999
The effectiveness of three substance-abuse-prevention videotapes derived from contrasting theoretical frameworks was evaluated using 312 rural Mexican-American students in grades seven through eight. The assertion-training video produced higher levels of assertiveness among ninth-graders; the others had no impact. Discusses the importance of cultural sensitivity in drug-abuse prevention approaches for Mexican-American youth. Contains 31 references. (TD)
