Part 1: Mastering the six CSAP strategies to address community prevention needs

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) West Strategic Prevention Technical Assistance Center (SPTAC) Team (HHS Regions IX & X) cordially invites you and your block grant sub-recipient grantees to join our regional webinar series, Tools for the trade: layering the six CSAP strategies for impact. This series is designed to equip your sub-grantees with the knowledge and tools needed to enhance their prevention work. Participation in both webinars is highly recommended but not required.

Part 1:  Mastering the six CSAP strategies to address community prevention needs
As the saying goes, "If the only tool you have is a hammer, it is easy to treat everything as if it were a nail.” Understanding the purpose and function of CSAP’s six strategies enables prevention practitioners to select the right tool or set of tools to be more effective in their work. This webinar will explore the purpose and function of each of the six CSAP strategies in building a comprehensive prevention plan tailored to specific community needs. Participants will also learn about common misunderstandings of CSAP strategies and gain practical examples for aligning strategies with community needs and reporting requirements.

Part 2: Layering evidence-based interventions with CSAP strategies: Building impactful prevention plans (Thursday, June 27, 3-4:30 p.m.)
Building upon the foundation laid in part one, the second webinar will demonstrate how various interventions, from practices to policies, align with the CSAP six strategies to create a layered approach. Participants will receive tips for developing comprehensive prevention plans that thoughtfully incorporate CSAP’s six strategies to address identified needs and achieve desired prevention outcomes.
