JOINING FORCES: Government & Community Involvement in Preventing Negative Outcomes for Youth

Wise community, religious, and political leaders throughout the years have proclaimed the need to build a fence at the top of a cliff instead of stationing an ambulance at the bottom. When asked, people will say that it’s better to prevent a problem than allowing it to fester and become a major issue we all have to deal with later; however, most people are unaware of the science behind how to prevent decisions that lead to negative outcomes. Participants will learn this science from a biological and social perspective. Participants will also learn proven ways to prevent negative outcomes.

This workshop will be presented by Craig PoVey on Tuesday, November 13 from 10:15 – 11:45 am at the Joining Forces Conference on Child Abuse and Family Violence.

Craig PoVey is the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Prevention Administrator for the State of Utah and serves as the chair for the Utah Prevention Advisory Council. He is the Past President of the National Prevention Network, and past chair of the National Prevention Research Workgroup. His strong belief in local solutions for local problems landed him on the Advisory Committee of the Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America.
