Overcoming Barriers to Implementation of Environmental Strategies to Reduce Excessive Alcohol Use (Advanced)

Tuesday, July 16th
1:30 PM - 5:00 PM
Texas C

Environmental strategies change the conditions in which adults and young people make their decisions about alcohol use. They often involve changing public policies, and are most effective when they address alcohol availability, affordability, and attractiveness to vulnerable populations such as youth. This session will review the evidence on the most effective environmental strategies and the common steps in an effective policy campaign. It will then focus on the experiences of participants in implementing environmental strategies regarding excessive alcohol use (including underage as well as binge drinking), and include participant-driven and hands-on problem solving regarding common barriers coalitions face in taking on risky alcohol environments.

At the end of the training session, the participants will be able to: 

1. Identify the most effective environmental strategies for reducing excessive alcohol use
2. Describe the key steps in an effective environmental policy change campaign
3. Identify and address key barriers to implementation of environmental policy strategies
