Webcast: Prevention as They Grow: Underage Drinking Prevention From Early Childhood to Young Adulthood

This webcast workshop addressed underage drinking prevention from a developmental perspective. Speakers discussed their research regarding fundamental developmental needs and milestones from early childhood to young adulthood. The speakers described transition points during childhood development when prevention messages should be implemented or reinforced. They also presented research that supports the continuing role of parents of college-age children in prevention. A final section of the workshop identified resources available from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to implement underage drinking prevention from preschool through college.
