Seven Strategies for Community Change

Seven Strategies for Community Change



Coalitions achieve significant impacts on their communities’ health and wellness when they start with a comprehensive, synergistic prevention plan. Using local data to select multiple programs, practices, and policies that address root problems from different angles can significantly reduce substance-related outcomes. Applying the “Seven Strategies for Community Change” within the Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF) is a helpful way to consider a mix of complementary approaches for your community. 

By the end of this training, participants will be able to:
•    Name each of the Seven Strategies for Community Change
•    Share examples of each strategy
•    Describe how using the Seven Strategies works within the context of the SPF


Prevention practitioners from across Arizona.
