Book, 2014, 121 pages, Professionals

This volume brings together international experts in the areas of prevention, health, and developmental science in the attempt to present the most up-to-date knowledge about etiology (e.g. risk and protective factors) of substance use behaviors and the most effective interventions that can be implemented in the school setting. Finally, it presents current hot topics in the field, such as the importance of implementation fidelity for the success of the program, the need to find effective ways to disseminate evidence-based interventions and to understand whether those interventions are, in fact, cost effective.
