{SocPsy}} Refusal skills are a set of skills designed to help children avoid participating in high-risk behaviors. Programs designed to discourage drug use, violence, and/or sexual activity frequently include refusal skills in their curriculums to help students resist peer pressure while maintaining self-respect. One such program is Drug Abuse Resistance Education D.A.R.E.. Programs may focus on: offering alternative activities, saying "no", being honest, and using humor.
