Formatted Abstract/Summary The overall aim of this chapter is to examine the case for harm reduction among adolescents, to describe promising lines of evidence for the utility of harm reduction approaches to prevention, as well as describe some of the challenges that proponents of harm reduction strategies face when working with adolescent populations. For the purposes of this chapter, harm reduction strategies are defined as those that focus on reducing likelihood of harm without necessarily requiring changes in the pattern or level of alcohol use (Stockwell, 2006). Such strategies have been argued to be conceptually distinct from demand reduction strategies (those that succeed by motivating adolescents to consume less alcohol, e.g., abstinence-oriented preventon), and supply reduction strategies (those that reduce the physical availability of alcohol e.g., laws against furnishing minors with alcohol) (Stockwell, 2006). In reality, the evidence base for alcohol-related harm reduction strategies for adolescents is emergent, and much research bridges the above distinctions. In the interests of gleaning as much as we can from the available evidence, the latter section includes strategies whose objectives are to reduce both harm and demand.
