What Does NOT Work in Prevention
August 8 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Many trainings and resources focus on what research has shown to be effective to prevent substance misuse. We also know through research what is NOT effective in preventing substance misuse and in some cases is harmful. Yet communities across the nation continue to implement these ineffective and sometimes counterproductive strategies. The focus of this webinar will be on identifying these ineffective approaches. We will also spend time discussing strategies prevention professionals can use to address the resistance often expressed by individuals and organizations reluctant to change long-standing, well-liked prevention practices.
By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Identify at least five interventions that have been shown through research to NOT be effective in preventing substance misuse
- List evidence-based approaches that can be used as effective alternatives to the ineffective/counterproductive strategies
- Describe strategies to address resistance to discontinuing ineffective and/or counterproductive prevention strategies
