Shared Risk & Protective Factors: The What, The Why and The How

When David Hawkins and Richard Catalano first proposed their Risk and Protective Factor Theory for substance misuse/abuse in the 1980’s, it was thought that there were a separate and distinct set of risk and protective factors for each behavioral health disorders.  What we have learned since then is that that while there are some unique risk factors for various disorders, there are also risk and protective factors that are shared. Knowledge of these can not only enhance the effectiveness and scope of our work in prevention and treatment, they can provide a basis for community collaboration. This webinar will explore the concept of shared factors, list reasons for and examples of their usefulness in strategic planning, and suggest opportunities for collaboration across disciplines.  At the close of this presentation, participants will be able to:

  • define and provide examples of shared risk and protective factors;
  • list 3 reasons for addressing shared risk and protective factors; and
  • list at least 3 strategies for overcoming common barriers to collaboration around shared factors.
