Staying Connected with Your Teen® Research

One of the hallmarks of our prevention science programs is that they are grounded on rigorous research from a variety of disciplines. The primary areas of research that form the foundation of our programs are:

  • a comprehensive, community-wide approach
  • demonstrated predictors of problem behaviors and positive youth outcomes -- what are more commonly referred to as risk and protective factors
  • tested, effective programs, policies, and practices.

The following is a select bibliography of reference materials for Channing Bete Company's prevention science programs.
