Part of our comprehensive workbook series and used in multiple program settings, Peer Pressure is an important supplementary resource to The Phoenix Curriculum Core Program. It is tailored by grade level for elementary school, grade 6, middle school, and high school. It is also suitable in alternative schools and afterschool programs.
Lessons provide students with the opportunity to examine and practice responses to peer pressure. They are provided as supplements to the peer pressure elements included in the High School Phoenix Core Curriculum. Students will be expected to identify specific behaviors and outcomes from peer pressure, identify steps for avoiding high-risk situations and high-risk people, and model specific coping skills for specific problem situations.
This can also be used in probation programs.

We provide several resources for parents of young people in Phoenix Curriculum and Phoenix Gang Intervention programs. Part of our comprehensive curriculum, our Parents' Curriculum provides an overview of the Phoenix resources.

In a non-judgmental fashion, it also encourages the parents to reduce common family risk factors and enhance available protective factors. This material is available for parents with children elementary school, grade 6, middle school, high school, and alternative schools. This resource is available in both English and Spanish.
