This 90-minute webinar will define "shared risk and protective factors" and their essential relationship to prevention science.  Participants will examine why it is important to assess risk and protective factors and the value in doing so in individual communities. The presenter will share methods for obtaining community-level information on the risk and protective factors among youth, in particular, and will discuss the pros and cons of these different approaches. Participants will have an opportunity to share their challenges with identifying shared risk and protective factors and explore potential steps they can take to recognize these factors in their community prevention efforts.
