Implementing a Social Norms Prevention Program at Scarsdale High School

Professor David W. Craig (department of chemistry) presented workshops for faculty and staff at Scarsdale High School to launch their new alcohol abuse prevention program on Jan. 15 and 16. Students from the high school completed a Web-based survey on attitudes, perceptions, and use designed by professors Craig and Perkins in the fall. Craig assisted staff in designing campaign messages from the data and in setting up electronic media to communicate accurate norms to the high school student, faculty and staff community.
