As prevention professionals, you have likely seen issues that are common​ among the youth, families and communities you work with - issues like poverty, families dealing with substance abuse, and youth who are not connected to or do not feel safe at school. We often refer to these issues as "shared risk and protective factors". This conference focuses on learning and implementing ​strategies that take ​a shared risk and protective factor approach to prevent multiple forms of violence, injury and substance abuse​, helping ​multiple programs and agencies​ achieve their desired outcomes​
