ALTHOUGH THE TRAINING WILL EMPHASIZE MITIGATING ALCOHOL ABUSE, IT WILL BE EMBEDDED IN A WIDER SUBSTANCE ABUSE CONTEXT IN ORDER TO ATTRACT PARENTS WHO ARE LIKELY TO BE INITIALLY MORE CONCERNED ABOUT ILLICIT DRUG USE THAN ALCOHOLABUSE. THE TRAINING PACKAGE HAS THE ACRONYM MITS BECAUSE ITWILL INVOLVE MODERATED INTERACTIVE TRAINING SESSIONS DESIGNED TO FACILITATE SOLUTIONS TO ALCOHOL AND DRUG-RELATEDPROBLEMS FROM AMONG PARTICIPATING PARENTS, ALTHOUGH PARTS OFMITS COULD BE DISTRIBUTED AS STAND-ALONE MATERIALS.
