The Icelandic model is an evidence based prevention method developed by The Icelandic Center for Social Research & Analysis (ICSRA). The method is composed of four steps extending from research to action on a local level and has been applied in the majority of municipalities in Iceland since 1998. The result have been noticeable, showing steady decrease in the use of substances amongst Icelandic adolescents, currently measuring amongst the lowest in Europe. Substance use amongst Icelandic adolescents was the highest in Europe in 1998. This year, Iceland ranks amongst the lowest.
Our three-day workshop will be held in Reykjavik, Iceland in March 2019. The workshops are designed to provide you with information, methodology and support towards adopting the Icelandic Prevention Model in your community.
Our next workshop will be held on the 6th to 8th of March 2019. During these three days, participants will get an in-depth knowledge about the Icelandic Evidence Based Prevention Model from ICSRA’s specialists and others working in the field with children and adolescents in Iceland.
Guests are responsible for making their own arrangements, flight and accommodations, but we are happy to answer any questions you might have. Lunch and refreshments are included in the workshop fee.
