This webinar will help the listener understand the evidence and theoretical base underlying Prevention Science, identifying the D.A.R.E. curricula as a model program. The D.A.R.E. curricula focuses on providing cutting edge instruction that helps prevent drug use by developing basic, core Socio-Emotional skills needed for safe and responsible choices, recognizing that if you can teach youth to make safe and responsible decisions, it will guide them to healthy choices, not only about drugs, but across all parts of their lives.
Drs. Clayton and Wyrick will discuss both the critical elements in the logic models supporting the elementary, middle, and high school curricula as well as the research findings related to D.A.R.E.
