J. David Hawkins, PhD, Endowed Professor of Prevention and Founding Director of the Social Development Research Group, School of Social Work, University of Washington, Seattle.
During his prestigious career, Dr. Hawkins has sought to identify risk and protective factors for health and behavior problems across multiple domains and to understand how these factors interact. He develops and tests prevention strategies, which seek to reduce risk through the enhancement of strengths and protective factors in families, schools, and communities. During this lecture, Dr. Hawkins shared his impressions on how the methods of prevention can best be embedded in public health-oriented systems of care.
