Eficacia diferencial de dos programas de prevención escolar sobre el consumo de tabaco, según el tipo de aplicador

Universidad Miguel Hernández

Aunque la investigación sobre la prevención del consumo de drogas ha mostrado que la eficacia de los programas depende en parte del tipo de aplicador, los resultados de los estudios dirigidos a dilucidar esta cuestión son contradictorios. Este estudio compara los efectos sobre el consumo de tabaco, a corto y medio plazo, de la aplicación de dos programas de prevención escolar en función del tipo de aplicador. La muestra se compuso de 200 alumnos de 1º de ESO, distribuidos en cinco condiciones experimentales: cuatro de intervención, en las que los programas fueron aplicados por los profesores o por psicólogos ajenos al centro, y una de control. Los resultados muestran que los profesores, cuando aplican el programa Barbacana, y los psicólogos, cuando aplican el programa Construyendo Salud, logran reducir la incidencia del consumo de tabaco (BR-docentes 15%; C.S-psicólogos 5%) y consolidar las actitudes contrarias al consumo de tabaco. Se destaca la presencia de un efecto de interacción entre el tipo de programa y el tipo de aplicador.

Effectiveness of two smoking prevention programs according to type of applicator. Although research on the prevention of drug use has shown that the effectiveness of programs depends partly on who applies them, the results of studies designed to clarify this issue are contradictory. This study compared the effects on smoking, in the short and medium term, of the implementation of two school-based prevention programs, depending on the type of applicator. The sample was made up of 200 seventh-grade students distributed among five experimental conditions: four of intervention, in which the programs were implemented by teachers from the school or by external psychologists, and one of control. The results show that teachers applying the Barbacana program and psychologists applying the Construyendo Salud (Building Health) program succeeded in reducing the incidence of cigarette smoking (BR-teachers 15%; C.S-psychologists 5%) and strengthening attitudes against smoking. An interaction effect between type of program and type of applicators was clearly observed.
