McDonald, Paul; Colwell, Brian; Backinger, Cathy L.; Husten, Corinne; Maule, Catherine O.
American Journal of Health Behavior, v27 suppl 2 pS144-S158 2003
Objectives: To offer programmers, policy makers, and researchers a scientific basis for developing and selecting smoking cessation treatments for adolescents. Methods: An evidence review panel systematically rated published and unpublished reports of cessation treatments for youth to make recommendations on theoretical foundations, delivery settings, types of intervention, and provider type. Results: Twenty studies had sufficient validity to inform the recommendations. The 9 studies that reported treatments that increased cessation were based on social cognitive theory. Conclusions: Cognitive- behavioral interventions are a promising approach for helping young smokers quit smoking. Evidence is insufficient to draw other conclusions at this time.
