TEEN RISKS: 4 BETTER OR WORSE? Webinar: Mar 6, 3pm ET

Data from over 39,000 risk assessments completed by adolescents from 2011 through 2013, reveals startling trends in teen risk behaviors with surprising changes – both positive and negative.

For example, did you know one of the most positive changes in teen behaviors is taking place behind the wheel?  And the biggest change in negative trends has nothing to do drugs, tobacco or alcohol?

Join us for a complimentary webinar where Dr. Jennifer Salerno will provide an overview of the most current risk behaviors identified in RAAPS 2013 data – and a detailed examination of the key differences and recent trends in adolescent behaviors over the last three years.

21,000 youth speak as one! Are you listening?

New 2013 data from RAAPS risk assessments of over 21,000 American youth – most from underserved areas – reveals startling  (and often hidden) risks that threaten the health and safety of our teens.  For example:

  • 25% of surveyed adolescents struggle with anger management
  • 1 in 5 were bullied or harassed in the last month, and
  • 13% have carried a weapon for protection (just over 1 out of every 10 youth surveyed!)
