Proposed Collection: Web-based Media Literacy Parent Training for Substance Use Prevention in Rural Locations, 0925-New, National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Need and Use of Information Collection: This study will develop a web-based media literacy substance use prevention intervention for use with parents and their elementary school children (approximately ages 7-12), and will evaluate the program in a randomized controlled trial to establish program efficacy in six rural communities in North Carolina and Texas. The primary objectives of the study are to assess the efficacy of a media literacy education program that is specifically designed to overcome barriers to prevention efforts in rural communities, and to provide the scientific basis for establishing the program, Media Detective Family, as an evidence-based substance use prevention curriculum. The findings will provide valuable information concerning: (1) The appropriateness of using technology for substance use prevention programming (i.e., internet, Smartphone, or tablet-based applications) to reach rural families with elementary school-aged children; Start Printed Page 35041(2) improvements in parents' and children's critical thinking skills associated with intervention exposure; (3) improvements in parent-child communication about substances and the media associated with intervention exposure; and (4) reductions in children's behavioral intentions to use substances associated with intervention exposure.

OMB approval is requested for two years. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. There are no capital, operating, and/or maintenance costs. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 1067.
