  • Communities That Care (CTC):  Diffusion of Research-Based Prevention in Pennsylvania (Louis Brown)
    This presentation summarizes the current state of the CTC implementation and technical support in Pennsylvania including information from recently published studies examining the effectiveness of the CTC model in PA.  (2010/SPR Conference)

  • Current Practices and Challenges in Encouraging High Standards in CTC (Louis Brown)
    This presentation provides an overall snapshot of the current CTC sites in Pennsylvania.  Overall, it appears that self-reported fidelity is generally high (although there is room for improvement), training received is minimal, and sites are experienced in the CTC model.  In regards to sites' support of evidence-based programs, there appears to be substantial room for improvement in providing ongoing training and fidelity monitoring and evaluation capacity building is greatly needed.  (2010/SPR Conference)
