Prevention Science Colloquium

Don't miss the inaugural Colorado State University Prevention Science Colloquium of the newly forming Prevention Research Center in the Department of Human Development and Family Studies, College of Health and Human Sciences.

We are very fortunate to have as our first speaker, Mark Greenberg, Ph.D., from the Penn State Prevention Research Center. His topic is, "Current and Future Challenges of School-Based Prevention." 

Program on best practices lists

Greenberg is a world renowned scientist whose work has profoundly influenced how preventive interventions are conducted in schools and communities.

He is co-developer of the Promoting Alternative Thinking Strategies (PATHS) program, an empirically-validated Social Emotional Learning Curriculum that is on most best-practices lists and is being disseminated widely across the U.S. and internationally.

His work bridges developmental psychopathology, prevention science, community psychology, and educational psychology.

Greenberg is the Edna Peterson Bennett Endowed Chair in Prevention Research, Professor of Human Development and Psychology, and Founding Director of the Prevention Research Center for the Promotion of Human Development at the Pennsylvania State University.

The Prevention Science Colloquium series

Training will be one important part of the mission of the Prevention Research Center. One way we will accomplish our training goals is that we are establishing a Prevention Science Colloquium series which will support bringing prominent researchers to our campus to present their cutting edge research and ideas to the CSU community.

The colloquium is being co-sponsored by the School of Education, the Department of Psychology, and the Colorado School of Public Health at CSU.
