Prevention Programs for Youth: A Guide to Outcomes Evaluation, Best Practices, and Successful Funding.
Stovell, Karienne, Ed.
Information about current prevention practices is provided in a comprehensive resource. An overview of different prevention approaches and how these models have been implemented in a variety of programs is presented. Techniques for outcomes research, other kinds of prevention studies, and funding opportunities are linked to a framework for reducing the impact that substance use, HIV/AIDS, truancy, violence, pregnancy, suicide, and other mental health problems have on young people. Six areas are covered in chapters: (1) "Getting Started" tells how to get started doing outcomes, and demonstrates how to use the information for program feedback and continual quality improvements; (2) "Theory & Practice" provides an overview of prevention research including risk and protective factors, pathways, and prevention models; (3) "Program Outlines" provides profiles of actual prevention programs including philosophy, methodology, outcomes, and tools; (4) "Proposals & Reports" covers how to write effective grant proposals and reports; (5) "Funding Resources" lists publications on funding including government and foundation funding opportunities for prevention programs; (6) "General Resources" lists organizations and places to go for information and support. Presented in short, concise chapters, this guide provides a solid introduction to prevention technology. Text contains marginal "editor's notes" and boxed tips. (EMK)
