Taking a Closer Look at the Six Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP) Strategies

This training is designed for substance misuse prevention and problem gambling prevention staff and supervisors, coalition leaders and members, and others interested in prevention in Iowa.

CEUs have been applied for with the Iowa Board of Certification.

The six CSAP strategies (information dissemination, prevention education, alternative activities, community-based process, environmental strategies, and problem identification & referral) describe the ways in which we offer primary prevention services. When used in combination, as part of a comprehensive plan, these strategies reduce risk factors and increase protective factors in order to impact substance use problems in communities served.

During this webinar we will:

  • Provide an overview of risk and protective factors for substance use and problem gambling
  • Describe each of the CSAP strategies and related examples
  • Consider how the strategies fit within the socioecological model and the Institute of Medicine (IOM) model, also known as the continuum of services model
  • Discuss and share ideas for how to apply the six strategies as part of a comprehensive prevention plan
