Rural Adolescent Perceptions of the Availability and Accessibility of Substance Abuse Treatment
The prevalence of substance abuse among rural adolescents has equaled or surpassed rates in urban youth, but rural substance abusers go untreated at rates twice that of urban populations. Cultural norms adverse to help-seeking, and low availability and accessibility of substance treatment in rural areas may effect treatment utilization. The primary purpose of this study was to assess rural adolescents’ substance problem recognition and perceptions of substance abuse treatment availability and

The Prereferral Intervention Process in Pennsylvania Following the Removal Of the Instructional Supp
The recent focus on Response to Intervention (RTI) has heightened the need for information regarding characteristics of prereferral intervention teams (PITs) that lead to successful outcomes. Though many researchers have theorized about important features of PITs, few studies have examined the factors that lead to high-functioning teams.

Parenting Education for Low-Income Parents of Preschoolers: What is the Most Effective Approach?
Parent education programs have been found to be effective interventions for lower-socioeconomic families. (Baydar, Reid, & Webster-Stratton, 2002). Although research has reliably reported that any parent training is better than no parent training (Helm & Kozloff, 1986), the effectiveness of group parent education programs which emphasize relational improvement is largely unknown. The present study attempted to address this question by comparing archival data collected between the years 1999 and

The Birth of Comedy
Take the topical satire of Have I Got News For You and mix thoroughly with the adolescent humour of The Inbetweeners, add in a healthy dose of Monty Python-esque absurdity and finish off with lashings of songs and dances. Then serve it all up to a baying crowd in an atmosphere more like a football match than a theatre stage. Welcome to the world of Aristophanes, ‘the father of comedy’. The rise of democracy in ancient Greece produced one of the greatest ever flowerings of culture and gave
