What’s New

Version 1.1

In addition to updates for the current existing behavioral strategies, the developers of the Adolescent Behavior Toolbox thought it extremely important to provide information for parents and teachers about coping with COVID-19. Although there is a lot of information available on the Internet, it takes a significant amount of time to find credible sources and get to the essence of what is likely to be the most helpful. We’ve taken the time to do that and provide a list of resources by country which we feel will have the widest applicability.
