This exciting new study is being conducted among teens (ages 14-17 years old), professionals who work directly with teens and guardians/caregivers of teens across the United States. As part of this project, researchers are seeking to better understand whether a phone app that works to help prevent aggression and alcohol use might work among teens. The research is designed to better understand the use of technology among teens and determine whether guardians and/or teachers/professionals would be open to using an in-school phone app that focuses on aggression and alcohol use prevention among teens.
