Title: 'PROTEGO, family training in educational skills for drug prevention'
Summary: ''PROTEGO', family training in educational skills for drug prevention' is a selective family prevention programme developed by PDS 'P.D.S. – Promoció i Desenvoluapment Social / Promoción y Desarrollo Social'. It consists of eight 2-hour sessions for groups of 12-15 parents of 9-13 year old children and adolescents. PROTEGO is a selective family training program in educational skills for drug prevention. PROTEGO is a specific program aimed at parents of adolescents at risk to abuse drugs. By developing and enhancing parenting skills, the program focuses on addressing risk factors and family protection, since, through the educational activities, parents can influence decreasing other risk factors. PROTEGO is a relatively long and intensive program and applied in small groups of parents from families characterised by the cumulative presence of risk factors. The program takes place over the course of 8 sessions in which we work directly with families in a neutral space. The purpose of the work is to provide direct educational skills to such families for better development of family relationships. Target group Families (parents) with adolescent children (9-13 year olds) with risk in parents or children and a history of behaviour or school problems which did not require therapeutic intervention. PROTEGO is based on the socio-ecological model of drug prevention and health promotion, that focuses on personal and environmental factors as targets for prevention interventions. According to this model, appropriate interventions in the family environment will produce changes in children. PROTEGO has been widely used since it was first developed and implemented by PDS on 2001, and has been adapted to be implemented in different social and cultural environments. There is a Romanian translation and adaptation of PROTEGO, a Latin American adaptation of the program that was developed as a component of an URB-AL project (R1-P3-98) and used in the municipalities involved in the project: Buenos Aires (Argentina), Medellin (Colombia), Montevideo (Uruguay) and Santo André (Brasil) and a specifically version for Bolivia. >>
