SCOPE Thought Piece, Question #4: What are some common mistakes made by prevention practitioners that should be avoided?

Michelle N. Issadore, M.Ed.

We must break out of the cycle of reacting to crises. By its very nature, primary prevention’s goal is to keep crises from coming to pass. However, when a crisis captures the attention of education or the nation, prevention practitioners would be wise to make their voices heard as experts on their campuses. Speak to your supervisor and others up the chain about sitting in on meetings, joining standing committees and communicating with the decision-makers at your institution. If you keep yourself well-informed and can articulate how and why changes need to be made, you will position yourself as an important resource now and for future planning.
