The book’s first part describes the scope of the tobacco problem in the Region, especially as it affects youth and adolescents. It delves into such issues as tobacco-related illnesses and reviews various approaches for sub- stance-abuse prevention. The second part discusses the application of the “life skills” approach to programs designed to prevent the use of tobacco and other substances. “Life skills” programs have a proven track record: by teaching such skills as self-aware- ness, stress management, assertiveness, and negotiation, they give young people the wherewithal to resist social and media pressures to use tobacco. As such, “life skills” programs have become one of the most effective weapons in the anti-tobacco arsenal.

Health professionals, program planners, educators, and policy- makers will find here a useful overview of the tobacco situation in the Region, as well as guidelines for the planning and development of “life skills” substance use prevention programs that are tailored to the needs of the Region.
