A new approach to curbing risky trajectories of adolescent alcohol/tobacco use: A tailored brief program for parents. (2009–2012)

Parent-adolescent interactions predict adolescent involvement in alcohol and tobacco use, and parent-oriented programs reduce conduct problems. Nevertheless, parent training is a rare alcohol/tobacco-related prevention strategy. This research will evaluate a brief parent program for adolescents at risk of escalating alcohol/tobacco problems. The technology should be cost-effective and readily complement existing school prevention strategies.
