Linking Violence and Substance Abuse Prevention to Academic Success  


Would you like to know the latest research linking prevention with academic achievement?

Would you like to see how others have collected data linking substance use and violence with academic performance?

Are you looking for ways to "make the case" that prevention programming can improve academic outcomes?

If you answered YES to these questions, then this online workshop is for you!

Objectives:
This workshop is designed to help you better articulate the connections between prevention and achievement, so that you can more effectively promote prevention programs in your school and community.  By the end of this event, you will have:

  Reviewed the latest research linking prevention programs to academic achievement

  Examined models for collecting data that links the two

  Identified the key components of an effective presentation linking prevention initiatives and academic performance


           

The Center's online continuing education training program offers a menu of skills-based, interactive learning activities designed to facilitate the transfer of knowledge into practice, enhance the exchange of effective practices among middle school coordinators (MSCs), and strengthen MSCs' capacity to implement effective prevention efforts.
