View all copies of this ISBN edition:

This evidence-based program is for youth in grades 6-9. It helps prevent substance use by reducing risks and boredom associated with unstructured free time. TimeWise helps students identify and pursue satisfying and healthy leisure interests. It also builds skills in decision making, planning and self-management; and empowers youth to clarify personal values, find new leisure interests, overcome obstacles and take personal responsibility for their free time. In addition, the program increases intrinsic motivation and initiative to help students make healthy choices and avoid substance use. Studies reveal that students who participated in the TimeWise program reported higher levels of interest and lower levels of boredom in their leisure time; scored higher than a comparison group on initiative and the ability to restructure boring situations; and showed an increase in planning and decision-making skills. Comes with a Teacher Guide and 1 Student Workbook.
