Power of Parents ® : Dr. Robert Turrisi from Pennsylvania State University developed and evaluated a handbook for parents of college students that successfully reduced underage drinking and the associated behaviors among participating college freshman. MADD has partnered with Dr. Turrisi and adapted his handbook model to reach parents of high school and middle school students to equip them with the tools to have potentially lifesaving conversations with their kids about alcohol. This handbook, along with other research-based information and resources for parents can be requested at madd.org or through your local MADD office, and is also provided to parents during free, 15 and 30 minute parent workshops conducted by a program certified facilitator.
