Communities that Care: Using Research to Prevent and Reduce Delinquency and Drug Use
The Pew Charitable Trusts DC Conference Center, Washington, D.C.
Featuring: Dr. Richard Catalano, Bartley Dobb Professor for the Study and Prevention of Violence Director, Social Development Research Group, School of Social Work, University of Washington
Dr. Catalano discussed the logic underlying the Communities that Care (CTC) approach, a system that provides the structure for community efforts to address youth issues, focusing on risk and protective factors through a community-wide, multi-step training process. The CTC model, developed by Drs. Catalano and David Hawkins, has been rigorously evaluated and found to have significant positive impacts on adolescents.
Respondents: Michael Little, Ph.D., Co-Director, The Social Research Unit, Dartington, UK; Patrick Lester, Senior Vice President for Public Policy, Alliance for Children and Families and United Neighborhood Centers of America
