1 Taking Advances in Prevention Science to Scale to Prevent Drug Misuse and Crime Community-Wide J. David Hawkins Social Development Research Group School of Social Work University of Washington
2 Research Guiding Practice Malleable risk and protective factors identified through longitudinal studies should be targeted by preventive interventions. (Coie et al., 1994; Woolf, 2008; O’Connell, Boat & Warner, 2009)
3 Advances in Prevention Over the past 25 years, controlled trials have identified both ineffective and effective prevention policies and programs.
4 Effective Programs and Policies Have Been Identified in a Wide Range of Areas Effective Programs and Policies Have Been Identified in a Wide Range of Areas 1.Prenatal & Infancy Programs 2.Early Childhood Education 3.Parent Training 4.After-school Recreation 5.Mentoring with Contingent Reinforcement 6.Youth Employment with Education 7.Organizational Change in Schools 8.Classroom Organization, Management, and Instructional Strategies 9.School Behavior Management Strategies 10.Classroom Curricula for Social Competence Promotion 11.Community & School Policies 12.Community Mobilization (Hawkins & Catalano, 2004)
5 Preventive interventions that address shared risk factors for different adolescent health risking behaviors have produced reductions in multiple outcomes, including drug use and crime. (Hawkins et al, 1999; Botvin et al., 2002 ; Flay et al, 2004; Haggerty et al., 2007; Schweinhart et al, 1992; 2005).

7 But… Prevention approaches that do not work or have not been evaluated have been more widely used than those shown to be effective. (Gottfredson & Gottfredson, 2002, Hallfors et al 2001, Ringwalt et al., 2002.)
8 The Challenge How can we take tested and effective prevention programs to scale… while recognizing that communities are different from one another and that people want to have control over what programs they use?
9 Why “community” level? Preventive services are implemented locally. Youths in different communities are exposed to different levels of risk and protection.

13 A Goal for Community Prevention To identify and address those risk factors that are most prevalent and those protective factors that are most suppressed with tested and effective policies and programs.
14 Communities That Care: A Tested and Effective Operating System for Community Wide Prevention CTC is a proven method for mobilizing communities to prevent underage drinking, tobacco use and delinquent behavior. CTC has been tested in a randomized controlled experimental trial involving 12 pairs of matched communities (24 communities) across 7 states from Maine to Washington. CTC’s effects have been independently replicated in a statewide dissemination trial in Pennsylvania.
15 Population Level Effects of CTC Compared with control communities, CTC significantly reduced the incidence of tobacco use, alcohol use and delinquent behavior community wide by end of 8 th grade. Compared with control communities, CTC significantly reduced the prevalence of smokeless tobacco use, current drinking, binge drinking and delinquent behavior community wide in 8 th grade.

28 Assess risk, protection and resources Implement and evaluate tested prevention strategies Increase in priority protective factors Decrease in priority risk factors Increase in positive youth development Reduction in problem behaviors Vision for a healthy community Process Measurable Outcomes 6-9 mos. 1 year 2-5 years 4-10 years Communities that Care Process and Timeline
29 Why Does CTC Work? Complete set of manualized trainings. Process for assessing community readiness. Milestones and Benchmarks that guide communities through the CTC process. Standardized assessment process for community needs assessment. Menu of tested and effective preventive interventions. Training and tools for monitoring implementation fidelity and quality and outcomes.
30 What Does CTC Achieve? Creates a stable infrastructure for prevention in the community. Creates synergy across preventive interventions and efficient use of prevention resources. Helps communities use epidemiological data to prioritize risk and protective factors for preventive action. Increases use of tested and effective preventive interventions. Extends the impact of prevention beyond individual programs and their direct recipients to the broader community – achieves population level outcomes.
31 Ingredients of CTC Success Identified through Research Local CTC board functioning is key to CTC effectiveness, the fidelity of evidence-based programs implemented through CTC, and sustainability of prevention effort. CTC board functioning is dependent on adequate training and ongoing technical assistance. Regular evaluation and feedback to local sites assists the joint work of TA providers and CTC boards in maintaining high-quality site functioning and program fidelity.
