4 Online/Distance Learning Substance Use Prevention Strategies for the Coronavirus Outbreak


Here are four online and distance-learning strategies for providing evidence-based and evidence-informed Prevention Plus Wellness programs during the COVID-19 outbreak.  

They include: 1) Recorded video programs, 2) Live streamed programs, 3) Correspondence booklets, and 4) Online training and support for providing PPW programs via distance learning. 

Each online/distance learning prevention program strategy is described briefly below. 

Recorded Video Programs 

Like face-to-face Prevention Plus Wellness (PPW) programs, each PPW video provides youth with a screening survey to increase awareness of their current health habits, provides feedback and positive future image communication designed to increase motivation for change, and instructs youth and young adults to complete a multiple behavior goal plan and contract to initiate healthy behavior improvements. 

Videos come with a link you can send to participants to access, as well as a link to complete an online multiple health behavior goal contract.

Live Streamed Programs 

Have your favorite evidence-based and evidence-informed Prevention Plus Wellness (PPW) program live streamed to your youth or young adult group.   

Simply set up a time and date that works best for you and your youth population and send out a link to register and join the program. 

Live streamed PPW programs provide a rich visual and audio learning experience.  Each last approximately one hour.

Correspondence Booklets 

SPORT and InShape PPW are quick and easy to use prevention with wellness interventions for professionals, peer leaders and parents who want to promote active, healthy and substance abuse free lifestyles among youth and young adults.  

The SPORT and InShape PPW Program Booklets can be provided to young people in nearly any setting and situation, including those where showing the original program’s PowerPoint slides might be a challenge or where face-to-face communication is not possible.
