A Concise History of School-Based Smoking Prevention Research: A Pendulum Effect Case Study
Sussman, Steve; Black, David S.; Rohrbach, Louise A.
Journal of Drug Education, v40 n3 p217-226 2010
School-based cigarette smoking prevention was initiated shortly after the first Surgeon General's Report in 1964. This article highlights a sequence of events by which school-based tobacco use prevention research developed as a science, and illustrates a pendulum effect, with confidence in tobacco use prevention increasing and decreasing at different points in time. Suggestions are offered to advance school-based smoking prevention research.
