Transform Community Norms & Narratives with the Science of the Positive


It's time to tell a new story about community health.

One that focuses on assets, strengths and protective factors. One that promotes health instead of risk, and communicates hope instead of fear. One that's guided by what we want to grow instead of what we want to prevent.

Come to the 2021 Montana Summer Institute and discover how to re-write your prevention story to improve health, increase engagement, and transform community norms. Get ready to re-wire the way you gather your data, select your strategies, and connect with those you want to reach.

You'll get hands-on training in messaging and outreach approaches that transform norms and narratives. You’ll learn to steer community conversations in ways that reduce stigma and promote support. And you'll hear from practitioners who are applying the Science of the Positive to correct misperceptions and transform cultures around issues such as:

  • underage, college, & adult substance use
  • distracted & impaired driving
  • marijuana legalization
  • child abuse prevention
  • sexual assault & dating violence
  • opioid abuse
  • & more.
