This developmental study will produce and pilot an innovative family education intervention aimed at reducing teen drinking and promoting safe driver and passenger behaviors.
- Targets families with youth 15-17 years old
- Focuses on a teachable moment, that is, when teen alcohol experimentation and misuse begin to rise and teens and their friends begin getting their licenses
- Includes an audio-CD entitled When Dangers Become Real: Helping Parents Address Teen Drinking and Driving
- Uses dramatic, reality-based stories to model positive parenting practices to promote desired alcohol behaviors
