Targeted interventions and the case of PreVenture
This year ADEPIS are determined to bring evidence-based practice to mainstream education. We will do this through the delivery of free regional seminars exploring CAYT quality assessed programmes.
On Monday 7th March we held the third seminar of the series, which looked at the targeted prevention prgramme PreVenture.
Whilst in our previous seminars we looked at universal prevention programmes such as Unplugged and Effekt, in this session we looked at the continuum of prevention and the importance and need for targeted prevention, with a particular focus on the PreVenture programme.
- Prof. Harry Sumnall, Liverpool John Moores University, about the importance of targeted and indicated prevention
- Dr. Patricia Conrod, PreVenture, background, evaluation, and implementation
- Nick Axford, The Dartington Social Research Unit (DSRU), about the continuum of evidence-based prevention and approaches beyond programmes delivery
