This 33-minute DVD presentation is drawn from the Developing Positive Parental Influences parent training component of the Creating Lasting Family Connections Curriculum (CLFC), a curriculum for promoting the healthy development of youth at risk for alcohol and other drug abuse. It features an exercise that illustrates the early excitatory, depressant, and rebound stages that occur during a single episode of acute alcohol intoxication. Designed for parents, it illustrates the risk associated with drinking games, birthday alcohol bashes, and binge drinking episodes. Strategies for avoiding the pitfalls of using scare tactics, while communicating the potential for harm are addressed. A card is also included that explains the CLFC curriculum series.
