The Impact of Education and School-Based Counseling on Children's and Adolescents' Views of Substance Abuse
Anderson, Shawanda W.; Moore, Paula A.
Journal of Child & Adolescent Substance Abuse, v18 n1 p16-23 2009
The purpose of this study was to investigate if a school-based education and counseling program (Life Skills Training Program) would have an impact on school-aged children/adolescents' views of substance abuse. The study also investigated the degree and direction of change. Participants were 338 elementary or middle-school students in the metro Houston, Texas, area. Results indicated that preexisting views significantly differed from post-intervention views, and that the Life Skills Training Program provided participants with a more accurate view of substance abuse. Findings support formulated hypotheses and effectiveness of the Life Skills Training Program with the sampled population. (Contains 2 tables.)
