Douglas Rosen
Director of Partners in Prevention
Doug Rosen and the Partners in Prevention Program are Beit T'Shuvah's response to the sobering issue of addiction amongst today's youth - a generation in which all are "at risk." Throughout Los Angeles, "Doug Rosen" has become synonymous with substance abuse education, teaching positive decision making, and in many cases, pre-empting families and their at-risk youth from a path of destruction.

Doug speaks to a national audience of adolescents and their communities, educating them about self-awareness, coping mechanisms for common teen issues, staring down peer pressure, and teaching them tools that will prevent or stop harmful thoughts and behaviors. Doug is a captivating speaker for wide audiences but also to the individual, personally mentoring a multitude of troubled youth. He and Beit T'Shuvah's clinical director Kathy Marks have developed a forward-thinking curriculum that is demanded by schools and temples throughout the country.

He holds a Bachelors degree in Political Science and Film from the University of Colorado and an MFTI from the Chicago School of Professional Psychology. Doug has put his education and social skills to dire use, relating to thousands of teens in a way that allows them to understand the message of living well, but spread it too.
