What is the SPF? An Introduction to SAMHSA’s Strategic Prevention Framework
This interactive, self-paced course offers practitioners new to the field of prevention a “just in time” opportunity to learn about the Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF)—SAMHSA’s five-step, data-driven planning process. Using a case-based approach, this course engages practitioners in each step of the model, following five communities as they work to assess local needs, build capacity to address prevention priorities, plan prevention activities, implement evidence-based strategies, and evaluate their prevention efforts.
