"Characteristics and Components of Effective Prevention Programming"

Presented by Dr. Eric Davidson, Director of IHEC, Eastern Illinois University

Description:

Prevention professionals typically have very little in their budget (or none!) to use for substance abuse prevention programming. Often preventionists wear other hats within their organization, too, leaving very little time for planning. The result is often a program or event that might seem impactful for a short period, but does not lead to a permanent behavior change. That's why it is so important to get the biggest bang for your buck. Effective prevention practices require solid groundwork and planning, and utilizing these best practices can illicit big changes over time. This webinar will discuss the common mistakes program planners make, and take you through the steps for identifying programs that will best meet the needs of your campus and community.
