Strategic Prevention is NOT merely a FRAMEWORK. Strategic Prevention is the core of not merely what we do… but who we are. It is our WHY. We are preventionists. As such the CHC approach is guided by our three core beliefs:
- We believe the best solution to any problem is to PREVENT it from occurring in the first place.
- We believe in the FULL ENGAGEMENT AND EMPOWERMENT of the community in understanding and solving the problem.
- We believe in being led by science and information to achieve population-level change.
Moving Beyond Frameworks
Communities require real solutions to their real problems. They are less interested in dogmatic theories and more inspired by authentic engagement. This means moving “beyond frameworks.” With more than 25 years of practical experience, working with the preeminent academics, theorists, policy makers and practitioners throughout the United States and internationally, CHC’s approach blends the best of, the most relevant and effective lessons, tools and applications from the varied and often branded sources and frameworks developed over the past several decades; strategically tailoring the prevention tool to fit the actual community’s culture, context and need.
