The National Prevention Science Coalition (NPSC) edited a representative statement answering “What is Prevention Science”, to reflect the current thinking in the field. It had been endorsed by EUSPR as by many other organisations. Recently NPSC suggested a subtle change which we also endorsed, content with this much needed nuance. Specifically, rather than referring to substance misuse or abuse, we are using the convention, Substance Use Disorder (SUD), which subsumes all aspects of substance use that are problematic.
EUSPR invites its members to post this statement on your website to ensure that we are all uniformly representing the essence and value of prevention science.
Culture of Prevention, a difficult concept to define but important to protect Public Health. If we have learned nothing else from COVID, prevention should be paramount. Springer recently sent a table of contents alert for Prevention Science Volume 22, Issue 1, now available online. It contains a Special Section: Promoting a Culture of Prevention: An International Perspective.
Follow this link: Volume 22, Issue 1 . Additionally you can go to the APSI Int’l website https://www.apsintl.org/previous-talks-recordings to hear comments of Craig PoVey and Claudia Zundel on the topic.

Prevention methods using shock tactics are proven to be ineffective. Nevertheless, strategies based on predominantly providing information about the dangers of substance use are widespread in Europe. The European Society for Prevention Research (EUSPR) is concerned about those so-called prevention strategies. It calls on decisionmakers, influencers and policymakers to use scientific proof of effectiveness as a criterion for exposing our youth to prevention methods and not to spend public money on rather commercial offers, since there are better and less expensive alternatives.
This year we have 3 workshops available in the morning session (9:30-12:30) and 2 workshops in the afternoon (13:30-16:30). *The workshops require a minimum of 10 participants* For workshop registration, please visit our Eventbrite page: EUSPR 2019 Post-conference workshop registration.
