Omtale Core Competencies to Prevent Problem Behaviors and Promote Positive Youth Development Winter 2008
Adolescence generally is considered a time of experimentation and increased involvement in risk or problem behaviors, including early school leaving, violence, substance use, and high-risk sexual behavior. In this volume, the authors show how individual competencies linked to well-being can reduce youth involvement in these risk behaviors. Five core competencies are emphasized:OL {list-style:disc}P:{margin-left 60px}* a positive sense of self* self-control* decision-making skills* a moral system of belief* and a prosocial connectedness.The chapter authors summarize the empirical literature linking these competencies to each risk behavior, providing examples from developmental and prevention research. They highlight programs and policies in the United States and internationally that have changed one or more dimensions the core competencies through efforts designed to build individual skills, strengthen relationships, and enhance opportunities and supports across multiple developmental contexts.
