Applying the Framework
Kim Brown, TurnKey w/ Kim Brown, LLC (TurnKey) president and owner, has facilitated training for many programs over the years. Ms. Brown believes that at its core the Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF) is the premier framework for problem solving. The framework is a data-driven, dynamic process that is geared toward a team approach which integrates well with the TurnKey method and philosophy.
SPF was created by Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA)1as a comprehensive guide to plan, implement, and evaluate prevention problems specifically for Substance abuse and misuse. However, we believe the power of this framework can be applied to create specific, measurable actions for any challenge or goal for both business and community.
Explore the SPF
The steps of the SPF include:
- Step 1: Assess Needs
What is the problem, and how can I learn more?
- Step 2: Build Capacity
What do I have to work with?
- Step 3: Plan
What should I do and how should I do it?
- Step 4: Implement
How can I put my plan into action?
- Step 5: Evaluate
Is my plan succeeding?
The SPF also includes two guiding principles:
- Cultural competence:
The ability to interact effectively with members of diverse population
The process of achieving and maintaining long-term results
No matter what the end goal, this process must foster an environment that promotes a healthy exchange of ideas. To be successful in the decision-making process, all the stakeholders need to participate. TurnKey utilizes the Technology of Participation (ToP)® facilitation method. This is a method proven to get the kind of results you need "..to generate ownership, create clear goals, open lines of communication, broaden perspectives, and inspire people to adapt to their changing environment."2
"We need to get all the voices back in the room," Kim Brown, President and Owner of the TurnKey w/ Kim Brown, LLC (TurnKey) group, says.
