OVERALL DESCRIPTION

Underage alcohol use continues to be an ongoing challenge facing prevention professionals. Use rates have generally been in decline for many years; however, alcohol continues to be the most used substance among youth. As such, underage alcohol use remains a key prevention priority, including addressing heavy and binge use and its consequences. This two-part webinar series will provide an overview of the current state of underage drinking and related prevention efforts for both younger youth and college-aged underage drinkers. Part 1 will review national and Central East regional data and discuss relevant issues surrounding underage alcohol use. Part 2 will provide information on culturally responsive evidence-based practices for preventing underage alcohol use.

COURSE DESCRIPTION

This webinar will provide information on available evidence-based and culturally responsive prevention strategies for addressing underage alcohol use. It will cover both environmental and behavioral interventions, as well as opportunities to implement or expand policies that can address the social determinants of health. The webinar will review general strategies for underage alcohol use as well as those specifically focused on early adolescents and/or college-age youth. Lastly, it will describe how to ensure cultural responsiveness is incorporated into youth alcohol prevention efforts and programming.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  1. Recognize the importance of providing evidence-based culturally responsive alcohol misuse prevention strategies
  2. Describe evidence-based environmental strategies for preventing underage alcohol use
