Evidence-based Practices Series, Session 1: What are EBPs and why are they important?

The RIPRC, September 2023

This is a recording of Session 1 of Evidence-based Practices (EBPs) Series: What are EBPs and why are they important? The first session set the stage for the training series by defining evidence-based programs (EBPs) and describing why they are important for meeting substance misuse prevention goals. Participants reflected on their goals of their substance misuse prevention efforts and determined how EBPs can help them achieve those goals. The session also reviewed what research shows are the core elements of effective prevention programs and what research shows is not effective. Finally, the session introduced several program registries that participants can use to identify and compare specific EBPs that meet their community’s needs.
