SPORT 2 PPW is an easy to use 6-lesson screening and brief intervention curriculum for prevention, health education and physical education professionals who want to prevent substance use and promote protective wellness behaviors and positive identities among youth.

SPORT 2 PPW is founded on the Behavior-Image Model, a marketing-related framework that targets naturally motivating positive peer and desired future images to increase motivation for change and multiple health behavior goal setting which in turn increases self-regulation skills of participants.
SPORT 2 PPW is highly flexible and can be used as a stand-alone program, or as an add-on component to other prevention, health education, sports, fitness, recreation, physical education, intervention or treatment programs. While it was created as a universal prevention intervention, some organizations use it as a selective and indicated prevention program for high risk populations.
