The effects of positive youth development interventions on substance use, violence and inequalities: systematic review of theories of change, processes and outcomes

This project is investigating whether community-based youth work programmes that focus on developing positives such as self-esteem and social confidence rather than on avoiding risk are effective in reducing violence and the use of substances such as cigarettes, alcohol and drugs. “There has already been a review of these sorts of interventions’ effects on sexual health, but not on violence and substance use,” Christopher Bonell said. A lot of money is being invested in such schemes, and he hopes to discover if this is “likely to be a good use of resources”.
