Successful Family Skills to Prevent Underage Drinking

Thursday, June 21, 2012 – 3:00-4:15 p.m. ET

Parents, for children to do well in school, succeed in life, and remain addiction free, you need to be well-trained in bonding, setting boundaries, and monitoring kids’ activities. And kids need to learn skills like accepting “no” nicely, following instructions, and saying “NO!” to underage drinking and drugs. But where can parents and kids learn these skills? Join us as we present “Seven Simple Skills to Promote Happy Families, Healthy Brains, and Alcohol- and Drug-Free Kids.” In our webinar, parents will be given seven specific skills from Jaynie and Art Brown of Utah that include communicating politely, establishing rules and routines for youth success, and using positive discipline are just some of the 7 skills that will be discussed. The Browns will also let parents know how they can start using this program to prevent underage drinking and other substance abuse in their family. This Program has been reviewed by researchers and rated as an exemplary, evidence-based program.

Managing Alcohol Outlet Density to Reduce Youth Access to Alcohol

Thursday, September 20, 2012 – 3:00-4:15 p.m. ET

Alcohol outlet density regulation is a science-based environmental strategy used to reduce or limit alcohol outlet density through licensing or zoning processes. Research has shown a strong correlational relationship between alcohol and violent crime. Research has also shown that when outlets are close together, more underage drinking occurs. By controlling the location of outlets, sales to minors can be discouraged and youth safety can be improved. Presenters will share information about regulatory strategies utilized in communities to manage alcohol outlet density in order to limit youth access to alcohol and improve public health, safety, and well-being by impacting crime rates, victimization, personal injuries, and fatalities. Presenters will also share information about useful resources to aid implementation of these types of efforts.
