Abstract

The purpose of the research reported herein was to associate prevention activities in the schools with abusing behaviors of the students, after statistically controlling relevant variables. Discrete activities and clusters of activities ("programs" or "models" were studied with a randomly assigned control group design. This approach was selected so that effective activities could be identified even against an overall background of increasing abuse during and after the prevention experience.
