Prevention Clearinghouse

The Prevention Clearinghouse (PCH) is the portion of the CSCC web site that offers materials, information and news for the prevention community. Many times we will also offer items of interest for the community at large, but our main emphasis is on aiding those looking for assistance in conducting prevention interventions.

PCH offers a listing of assets available. Please look below for items that interest you. We will adding more structure in the near future.

Prevention Tools

  • Risk and Preventive Factors - There are many different and interrelated causes of problems and desired outcomes. If an organization or individual can understand these causes, their interventions and interactions can better focus on making improvement. Having a good understanding of risk and protective factors (R&P factors) that may be at least partially responsible for a particular problem or desired outcome and the targeted population provide an excellent base from which to develop or choose strategies for your initiative. Our page provides details about R&P factors.
