Evaluation of a school-based intervention method for drug using students



Evaluation of a school-based intervention method for drug using students



Medycyna Wieku Rozwojowego 7(1 Pt 2): 157-172



The article presents the study results concerning the feasibility of an intervention method for drug using students in the school environment. The representatives of 11 schools from three towns took part in focus group interviews. They shared their experiences related to the use of this method in practice. During the research period 34 interventions were conducted. Most of them were held according to the basic assumptions of the intervention method. In the opinion of the respondents, 15 of the undertaken interventions finished successfully. This means, that persistent change in student behaviour was achieved or there was no evidence of further breaking school rules by the student. The outcome of the study indicates, that the probability of achieving desired effects was going up with the increase in the number of implemented components of the intervention method. The gathered information allows to conclude that this school-based intervention method can be useful for the school staff and that for most part, it fits their potential skills.
