Universal Prevention Classes

 

LifeSkills Training

 

Botvin LifeSkills Training (LST) is a research-validated substance abuse universal prevention program proven to reduce the risks of alcohol, tobacco, drug abuse, and violence by targeting the major social and psychological factors that promote the initiation of substance use and other risky behaviors. This comprehensive and exciting program provides adolescents and young teens with the confidence and skills necessary to successfully handle challenging situations. 

Rather than merely teaching information about the dangers of drug abuse, LST promotes healthy alternatives to risky behavior through activities designed to:

  • Teach students the necessary skills to resist peer pressures to smoke, drink, and use drugs

  • Help students to develop greater self-esteem and self-confidence

  • Enable students to effectively cope with anxiety

  • Increase students knowledge of the immediate consequences of substance abuse

  • Enhance cognitive and behavioral competency to reduce and prevent a variety of health risk behaviors.
