Participants will understand how the culture around our youth plays a significant part in forming their values and behavioral norms. They will understand how environmental change strategies move away from the focus on individual behavior and attempt to impact this larger environment. In addition to the skills they need to resist pressures to use alcohol and other drugs, will the environment around them provide protection or put them more at risk. Strategies include change laws, policies and community practices. This course will cover the impact of environmental change on the entire population to reduce collective risk.
