1 Hour Webinar Training with Rebecca Ireland

PRESENTATION: Environmental strategies help shape the places where people live, learn, work, and play into areas that are more supportive of healthy and safe behaviors. In the arena of substance use prevention, environmental strategies aim to reduce the ease of access to substances and address the pricing, promotion, marketing, and pro-use social norms which can influence individuals’ and groups’ behaviors. Research has shown that environmental strategies are some of the most consistently effective and broad-reaching approaches to reducing a population’s substance use. When coupled with individual and educational strategies, environmental management efforts can not only prevent use, but may also help to create places which are more supportive and safer for people who are in recovery from a substance use disorder.
Training participants will learn about research-based environmental strategies and how they fit in to a comprehensive substance use prevention approach. Participants will also learn how to match environmental strategies with community needs and explore the opportunities for community and stakeholder engagement in implementing and monitoring environmental management efforts in the short and long-term
