Telling Your Community's Prevention Story: Tips & Tricks for Creatively Collecting Process Data


This webinar will examine the process of community-based planning and mobilization that produces rich data that can be weaved into a community’s prevention story. Preventionists, especially those working with diverse and underserved communities, need access to creative methods of collecting, analyzing, and reporting data. It can often be a struggle to use traditional evaluation methods in ways that maintain the spirit of the community voices and adequately account for issues of cultural and linguistic translation.

What types of systems can be put into place to facilitate collecting and reporting rich, meaningful data that are also culturally appropriate? How can reporting of these data account for the storytelling and other creative products that emerge from community planning processes? This webinar will explore methods for collecting and working with the variety of data that often emerge from these processes and will also look at creative planning tools that produce easily captured creative data.
