Title: PRexistências– drug addiction prevention project in school community
Summary: PRexistências was structured according to principles of school-based third generation models for prevention of drug addiction. These models are based on the cognitive behavioural paradigm and are characterized by comprehensive and systematic approaches developed through integrated and complex curricula which emphasize the training of social and personal skills. The problem of drug addiction was put on an ecological framework. The project was implemented during four years (2009-2012). During the first two years 3 intervention curricula were designed and implemented: an universal prevention program with 8 sessions (applied to 399 adolescents; 5 schools); a selective prevention program with 20 sessions (applied to 320 adolescents; 3 schools); and finally, the program of peers leadership with 28 sessions (applied to 12 adolescents); in parallel to this intervention devoted to youth with ages of 12 to 18 years, awareness actions on the same thematic were implemented in the remaining members of the school community: parents, teachers and school staff in a total of 400 subjects. The first two years results were positively evaluated, however it was considerate that initial model of intervention needs changes, towards the fulfilment of the original aims through a new and more collaborative intervention. The following problems were identified during an attempt to “giving voice to the community”: 1) risk factors appear earlier; 2) weak parental involvement in youths life; 3) the fact that only project technicians were responsible by the intervention on prevention of drug addiction and schools, despite of their support to the project, have adopted a passive role. After the identification of these problems, an effort to find alternative approaches that could guarantee the implementation of an integrated project that could function per se and promote effective changes in school community. With this objection an alliance between school community and project was established on the basis of the commitment of both parts towards a proactive role to solve the problem. During the last two years of the project (2011-2012), teachers were progressively more responsible by the application of programs. Thereby, there was a need to find a new curriculum that could be validated and recognized by the teaching community as an added value for their own professional project: “Me and the others” was the curriculum selected. During the first phase of implementation, project technician apply sessions (being a role-model), at same time, teachers received training. Afterward the application works with project technicians and teachers’ collaboration. This way it was possible to train skills to sustain protection factors for children and youth (1008 subjects) and in parallel it was possible to promote teachers’ master skills (19 subjects) who trained and implemented new work methodologies and were prepared to implement the program by themselves. The intervention also included children between 6 and 10 years old (1st cycle of education): programs for training of personal and social skills were developed targeting 155 children and parents (10 subjects) towards the promotion of parental skills. Finally, following an intervention approach which considers that the school context is not limited to students, actions targeting school technicians, teachers, operational assistants and parents were developed. The objective was for these groups to develop prevention skills and to make them active prevention agents. Specific targeted actions were also developed towards public awareness of the entire school and community. >>

Title: Sosyal Aktiviteler Projesi – Social Activities Project
Summary: The aim of the project is to employ high-school students with activities in drug-free environments. The project is run by Istanbul Police Department with the cooperation of education departments and city municipalities in Istanbul. The project is particularly implemented in high-risk areas and schools where infrastructural capacity is low and risk of substance use is high. Besides its vulnerable residents, Istanbul also attracts many domestic immigrants from Anatolia. This population is mostly located in ghettos or inner parts of the city. Students in these places are not able to engage in youth activities. They spend most of their time at streets and malls without doing anything. As a result, the more time in unsupervised settings, the more risk of substance use. Therefore, the project aims to attract students and employ them with activities (sport, cultural, art, handcraft etc.) in their own social environment. The municipalities provide trainers, equipments, and places for youth. School counsellors motivate students to participate in activities and monitor their enrolment/attendance. Students in programmes are required to participate in activities twice a week. Beside coordination and evaluation tasks, police give seminars about substances and consequences of substance use. It is expected that when students leave the streets and participate in youth activities, they are less likely to use substances. The activities under adult supervision provide them with a drug-free environment and enable them to engage in positive activities in their free time. Trainers do not only entertain them, but also teach them self-discipline and risk of substance use. This natural protection helps students to improve their skills and to adopt conventional lifestyles. The intervention is implemented during educational terms and evaluated with pre- and post-test design surveys. This project is still implemented in three districts of Istanbul. >>
