The Great Lakes PTTC offers this training for prevention practitioners in HHS Region 5: IL, IN, MI, MN, OH, and WI.

This two-part webinar will provide substance misuse prevention practitioners with an overview of environmental strategies. The series will focus on the importance of environmental strategies and how they differ from individual-focused prevention programs. It will also highlight three categories of environmental strategies: communications, policies, and enforcement.

Please plan to attend both sessions of this training.  You will only need to register once – the Zoom link will be the same for both sessions.  

Part 1: February 10, will cover the basics of what environmental strategies are, the benefits and limitations of using them, how they differ from individual-focused strategies, and the communication category of environmental strategies.

Part 2: February 17, will focus on the policy and enforcement categories of environmental strategies, as well as the resource available to guide the selection and implementation of environmental strategies.
