  1. Developing a media-and school-based program for substance abuse prevention among hispanic youth : A case study of Mirame !/look at Me ! Combining communication theory, research, and practice in substance abuse prevention among minority populations.

    Article - En anglais

    Mirame !/Look at Me ! is a substance abuse prevention program for low-income Mexican American youth 9 to 13 years of age.

    The theory-driven curriculum, developed for mass distribution via a satellite television network, features social models who demonstrate cognitive-behavioral skills and display conservative norms regarding substance abuse.

    An 18-session curriculum contains 5-minute videos that are assigned to be followed by discussion and social reinforcement from a teacher or volunteer.

    This case study reports the program development process and experiences in the initial dissemination of the program through national networks for schools and cable television subscribers.
