Current and Future Directions in Elementary School Drug Prevention
Hansen, William B.
Journal of Drug Education, v40 n1 p91-98 2010
Drug prevention efforts in elementary schools are widespread. Nonetheless, there are clear challenges that both researchers and practitioners face. Because there may be occasional unintended negative outcomes--statistically these are guaranteed--does not mean all prevention efforts should grind to a halt. It is far better that any observed failures should pave the way for future progress. There are sufficient promising results that provide clues about how to increase effectiveness and decrease unintended harm. However, until a different strategy for moving forward is adopted, progress toward defining appropriate early prevention approaches may be slow to emerge. (Contains 1 figure.)
