Title: Zertifikatslehrgang "Sucht- und Gewaltprävention" Certificate training course on addiction prevention and violence prevention
Summary: The Institut Suchtprävention in Linz (Upper Austria) developed and accreditated together with the College for higher education on social work and health (Upper Austria), the Johannes-Kepler-University Linz (Upper Austria) and the College for higher education on pedagogics (Upper Austria) three training courses on addiction prevention and violence prevention. The target group are key persons from relevant areas with different levels of knowledge. By training of these key persons, addiction prevention and violence prevention should be anchored as multidimensional common task in the society. The training courses are building on each other and are organized as modules, so they can be attended besides work. The first and shortest training course (Zertifikatslehrgang) was implemented and evaluated as pilot project from 09/2008 to 02/2010. In the year 2008 the first Zertifikatslehrgang was implemented as pilot project. 20 participants were selected. An evaluation of the pilot project as longitudinal section study with interactive questionnaires as well as participating surveillance by external students was carried out. The results showed, that the quality of the referees as well as the content were assessed very positively. Allthough persons who had already experiences were less satisfied with the training course than persons without experiences. To be able to consider this in future trainings, the concept was adapted and some referees changed. In March 2011 27 persons will start with the Hochschul- resp. Masterlehrgang, of these 7 graduated from the pilot project (Zertifikatslehrgang). >>

Title: plus
Summary: The addiction prevention program “plus” is used in 5th to 8th level of education (pupils between 10 and 14 years) in continuative schools (secondary school, new secondary school, grammar school) throughout Austria. During the year, implementation takes place with four focal points covering five fields of issues in ten tuition units. They focus on principles which are appropriate for the age of the pupils and which build on their growing competences. Additionally, they take into account connections of the problem areas violence, sexuality, consumption, addiction, challenges of everyday life and gender-related aspects of personality development. For all tuition units, teachers are provided with prefabricated teaching material. After a pilot phase in each province, the program has been carried out throughout Austria since 2009 and offers compulsive further education for involved teachers during all of its run time. An evaluation carried out 2009 to 2013 and covering 4 years documents that intervention classes – compared to control classes -show positive changes - according to self assessment of the pupils and according to teachers. Among others, “plus” is associated with a significantly lower rise of consumption-experiences concerning cigarettes and alcohol and a significantly lower rise of behavioural problems and problems with peers. The differences mentioned cannot be detected until the fourth program-year. Evaluation shows that the objectives of “plus” can be gained when the program is carried out as planned. >>
