Teachers' Perceptions of a Multiple High-Risk Behavior Prevention Program and Delivery of Universal Programming
Collier, Crystal; Henriksen, Richard C., Jr.
Qualitative Report, v17 Article 100 2012
Much of the success of high-risk behavior prevention programs rests with teachers who deliver the curriculum however; few studies have investigated teachers' perceptions of program implementation. The objective of this phenomenological study was to answer the question, "What are the experiences of teachers who are asked to be involved in the implementation process when their school adopts a multiple high-risk behavior prevention program"? Participants included 10 teachers at a local, private high school in the Southern United States. Five themes emerged: (a) lack of consistent historical effort, (b) need for program, (c) positive but tentative perceptions, (d) challenges with implementation, and (e) review of program counselor. The qualitative results identified factors that can promote or hinder success of the program.
