Social Competence Promotion Program for Young Adolescents (SCPP-YA)

Brief Program Description

The forty-five session Social-Competence Promotion Program for Young Adolescents (SCPP-YA) is a social and emotional learning program that has three modules. The first module includes twenty-seven, 40-minute lessons of intensive instruction in self-control, stress management, social problem solving, and communication skills. The other modules include two nine-session programs that teach students to apply these personal and social competencies to the prevention of substance use and high-risk sexual behavior. This one-year program has produced benefits with diverse fifth- through seventh-grade populations. It is most effective when offered in the context of coordinated, multiyear social development and health-promotion programming.
