Date:  Tuesday, October 24, 2017

Time:  1-2 p.m. PT (2 p.m. MT, 3 p.m. CT, 4 p.m. ET)

Join Dr. Jason Burrow-Sánchez, author of ADAPT, to learn how the ADAPT small-group intervention can help middle and high school students who are at risk for substance use, aggression, truancy, poor school performance, and depressive moods.

ADAPT teaches students the fundamental skills of problem solving and decision making then provides opportunity to generalize those skills to common issues adolescents experience such as negative mood, anger management, communication, social support, and understanding the negative effects of drugs. 

Two years of field-testing in a high school setting demonstrated that students receiving the program had decreases in depressive symptoms, increases in self-esteem, and good rates of abstinence for substance use compared to those who did not receive the program. Examples from work with students in secondary school settings as well as adolescents in juvenile justice will be shared.
