Societal problems resulting from school dropouts, teenage pregnancy, drug abuse, suicide and other health-damaging behavior are increasing, along with the financial costs. This paper presents a theory of youth development and learning, and an integrated, interactive and reciprocal model for the prevention of health-damaging behavior.
