Important decisions on whether and how to prevent drug abuse, criminal behavior and violence are too often made based on shallow grounds. Social workers and health promotors need to have a grasp on the science base of prevention. They need the capacity to translate it to the floor of practice addressing not only youth in schools, but also adults in the workplace or people in the community. Peer van der Kreeft leads an European network of researchers and practitioners establishing a standardized training model on prevention. The robust training is delivered to the students in an interactive way.
