8 September 2015 | Education

This year Mentor is determined to bring evidence-based practice to mainstream education. We will do this through the delivery of free regional ADEPIS seminars exploring CAYT quality-assessed programmes.

We are pleased to announce that our second seminar will look at the Effekt  programme (Örebro Prevention Programme).

The Örebro Prevention programme is a universal prevention programme designed to decrease underage drunkenness by maintaining parents’ restrictive attitudes and expectations concerning underage drinking.

The Effekt programme works around parental leniency in relation to their own children’s use of alcohol.

The programme works in three stages:

  1. Raising parental concern around alcohol use among young people;
  2. Empowering parents by making them aware that their attitudes and behaviours matter;
  3. Providing them with the right tools and techniques to prevent their child’s drinking behaviour.

Nikolaus Koutakis, PHD from Örebro University in Sweden will take us through these key stages, also giving some useful tips and recommendations for those interested in implementing the programme in the UK.
