*Pre-Conference Workshops

One or more Pre-Conference (PC) Workshops may be held virtually Summer 2020.  We will provide updates as available.

The Society for Prevention Research provides training opportunities in prevention science during “pre-conference” workshops.

All workshops require registration (FREE).

(two  half-days), Tuesday, August 11, 2020 and Thursday, August 13, 2020

August 11, 2020, 1:00 pm – 4:30 pm EST

Synthesis of Datasets to Understand Risk and Prevention of Important Mental, Emotional and Behavioral Health Outcomes. (To register select: Synthesis of Datasets).

The purpose of this workshop is to encourage research to integrate/harmonize existing data sets from preventive intervention trials implemented early in life and administrative data (e.g., national death index, child welfare, criminal justice, etc.) to: 1) examine risk and protective factors relevant to later mental health outcomes in childhood, adolescence and young adulthood that could become targets of prevention; and 2) determine whether preventive interventions delivered earlier in life have long-term effects, and cross-over effects (e.g., unanticipated beneficial effects), on important MEB health outcomes.

PC Workshop II

(half-day), Wednesday, August 12, 2020, 2:00 pm – 5:30 pm, EST

Photovoice for Social Action and Social Justice. Promoting Cultural Competence and Place-Based Prevention Science. (To register select: Photovoice)

Our team’s collective work exemplifies the 3rd Training Needs Assessment Task Force (TNATF)-identified theme: cultural competence and community collaborations. Our projects focus on culture as the foundation of health, such that privileging the culture of the communities with whom we work will promote health equity and provide an avenue for eliminating health disparities. Photovoice is a collaborative approach to social justice – community members work together to identify their concerns and solutions, while prevention scientists may collaborate via the role of facilitator. As facilitators, we must recognize and revisit our own cultural backgrounds, foregrounds, and trajectories as a precursor to working with others in this manner. Place and culture are linked, and therefore place matters in health and prevention science. These ideas continuously are presented and interrogated throughout the workshop. (more details)
