Pediatricians alerted to the developmental nature of underage drinking in special journal supplement

on the life of not only the child, and teenager, but for the life of the individual, said Elias A. Zerhouni, M.D., director of the NIH.

Examining prevention strategies, Richard Spoth, Ph.D., director of the Partnerships in Prevention Science Institute at Iowa State University, and his team reviewed the current evidence base for preventive interventions addressing underage drinking. They recommend applying emerging consumer-oriented and community-participatory models for intervention development and research as a strategy.

In an article called, "Developmentally Informed Research on the Effectiveness of Clinical Trials (DIRECT): A Primer for Directly Assessing How Developmental Issues May Influence Treatment Response among Adolescents with Alcohol Problems" Eric F. Wagner, Ph.D., associate professor in the Community-Based Intervention Research Group at Florida International University, reviews the degree to which developmental processes have been considered in adolescent alcohol treatment research and discusses promising concepts and methodologies from applied developmental science.

Alcohol treatment outcome studies discussed by Deborah Deas, M.D., M.P.H., professor of psychiatry at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, include family-based interventions, motivational interviewing, behavioral therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and limited pharmacotherapy studies.

These papers comprehensively address the complex relationship between development and underage drinking, noted Vivian B. Faden, Ph.D. deputy director of NIAAAs Division of Epidemiology and Prevention Research and co-editor of the Pediatrics supplement. By providing clinicians with this information, we anticipate that this supplement will advance the goals set forth in the U.S. Surgeon General's recent Call to Action to Prevent and Reduce Underage Drinking.

Released in March of 2007, the Surgeon Generals first Call to Action on underage dri
