The purpose of this thesis was to develop a multi-component curriculum to address adolescent substance abuse by educating parents about contributing risk and protective factors, providing a supportive environment where parents can explore ways in which these factors operate in their own families, and by acting as a laboratory where parents and families can learn and experiment with skills meant to decrease risk factors and increase protective factors among their pre-adolescent children.
The intervention utilizes a variety of therapeutic approaches within three group types: family therapy, psychoeducation, and multi-family The curriculum is intended for integration into tiered or universal programs. A facilitator's guidebook and presentation materials form the core curriculum content.
