A Conversation with Dalene Beaulieu

Dr. Rivka Press Schwartz and Ms. Dalene Beaulieu
January 18, 2024

For the past six years, Machon Siach has been working to understand the scope of the substance use problem among Modern Orthodox adolescents, and to identify and implement evidence-based interventions to address that problem. This eventually led to the implementation of the Guiding Good Choices parenting program for all 9th grade parents. In this work, we have been guided by Dalene Beaulieu, an expert from the University of Washington’s Social Development Research Group. Listen as we explore what we learned from her, and what she learned about our community, over these years. This is the first episode in a new podcast series, hosted by Dr. Rivka Press Schwartz, called Substance Use among Modern Orthodox Adolescents: Identifying Problems, Implementing Solutions.
