About Keepin' it REAL keepin’ it REAL (kiR) is a scientifically proven, effective substance use prevention and social and emotional competency enhancing program designed to focus on the competencies linked to preventing substance use and abuse. This program is based on the real stories of young adolescents and program videos serve to provide social modeling of effective strategies. Youth have opportunities to create their own media as part of the program. The lessons are designed to promote interaction among the students as well as between the students and teachers so that students are involved in their own learning. Students also learn how to assess risk, value their perceptions and feelings, and communicate effectively. Program Outcomes Evaluation studies demonstrate that kiR: Reduces rates of alcohol, tobacco, and marijuana use by as much as 45%. Leads to discontinuation of use. Rates of discontinuing all substance use were 61% higher for program participants than for students who didn’t receive the program. Leads to more realistic perceptions of peer use, increases anti-substance use attitudes, increases efficacy in resisting offers of substances, improves relationship skills, self-awareness, and responsible decision-making. Program Structure keepin’ it REAL consists of ten 45-minutes lessons including five videos. kiR enhances social, psychological, and emotional competencies that serve to protect youth from substance use, provides visual behavioral models, and practice opportunities for the application of skills. Utilizing a “from kids…through kids…to kids” approach, all lessons, including role-play scenarios and decision-making applications, are based on real teens’ stories.  Audience Size: 6-50 Number of Lessons: 10 (with optional 4 booster lessons) Session Length: 45 minutes Frequency of Implementation: Once per week Duration of Implementation: 10 weeks Topics of the lessons: Options and Choices, Risks, Communication and Conflict, Refuse, Explain, Avoid, Leave, Norms, Dealing with Feelings, Support Networks. keepin' it REAL Trainings *Please note that registration will close 10-days prior to each training* January 28-29, 2019The Matthew B.
