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: ANABABA – Cocuklarimizi Güclendirelim ANABABA – Mam & Dad - Let's empower our children Addiction prevention with parents with migration background
Summary: The aim of ANABABA-project is to reach parents with Turkish migration background and to sensitise them to measures in the field of health promotion and addiction prevention. The information gained is supposed to be integrated in the upbringing of the children and to help avoiding the development of addictive behaviour of the children. Activities included the production of a film together with parents, children and juveniles with Turkish descent. Within the framework of this film, that is not consistent with a common presentation or educational film, important messages concerning the promotion of protective factors and risk competence were prepared for parents with Turkish migration background in an interesting and acceptable form. During presentations (of about four hours) for different socioeconomic Turkish groups (e.g. associations, mosques, women's afternoon teas etc.), the film is shown by moderators with Turkish language skills who are accepted in the Turkish community. In the following discussion and reflection, which was moderated by accepted members of the Turkish community, participants were enabled to use the information they received for their everyday life (of upbringing). Furthermore, parents, who were present at the presentations, can take home the DVD with booklet and information-brochure. The results of the external evaluation confirm that the informative meetings were able to influence participating parents' established attitudes concerning the development and maintenance of addiction significantly. Transfer-analysis (after 12 months) showed that the participants remember relevant issues, especially those concerning children's upbringing but not those in the field of addiction prevention. The participants were not able to remember the existence of a connection between the way of upbringing and the development or maintenance of addiction. The majority of the participants are of the opinion that the presentations are suitable to offer knowledge to parents with a migration background. The presentations' program might be changed concerning the amount of information (not too much) and topics might be presented more simple. >>
