The purpose of this research-based design was to address drug prevention and health promotion strategies through the combination of : (1) parent education and involvement ; (2) community partnership, and (3) positive peer influence.
These strategies were implemented using a four-cornered partnership among Florida State University, an elementary school, a middle school, and a community advisory board.
Expected outcomes were improved self-concept, improved drug knowledge and awareness, improved decision making and drug refusal skills, and improved perceptions of family coping and adaptability.
Bimonthly parent education courses and weekly peer role modeling sessions between middle and elementary school students comprised the interventions for this research.
Results were encouraging as increases were found in the predicted direction for the experimental group on all of the major variables.
