School-Based Prevention

"Interactive programmes based on the model of social influence or life skill competence have been shown to be effective in schools, but individual measures carried out in isolation (for example, only communication of information, affective education or other non-interactive measures) have been negatively evaluated (Bühler and Kröger, 2006). For organisational reasons, school-based prevention is usually the responsibility of local authorities, especially in the Nordic countries, France and Poland."
