Webinar: Identifying culturally relevant and effective substance use prevention programs for Tribal communities: One example from Washington State
Although the rationale for directing limited resources toward “evidence-based” programs is sound, it also presents challenges – especially for American Indian communities where substance abuse prevention resources are critically needed, and yet research is greatly lacking.
This webinar will discuss:
- How best to balance research evidence, cultural relevance, and community needs for selectingevidence-based substance use prevention programs
- How this approach has been applied in Washington State through a collaborative effort between policymakers, researchers, and tribalcommunities to identify effective substance use prevention programs.
