Individual Change Strategies
T.I. also involves programming aimed at helping participants develop the knowledge, attitudes, and skills they need to change their own behavior while influencing the behavior of their peers in a positive manner. T.I. includes an emphasis on life and social skills, interactions amongst participants, norms for and a commitment to not using alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs, and peer-led programming. These components have all been identified by SAMHSA as components of successful prevention programs.
