Two documents are available from the Prevention Institute

“Taking action to reduce disparities often means working in coalition. Two recent publications from Prevention Institute may be useful to help create effective coalitions: The Tension of Turf”” and “”Collaboration Math””. The first paper discusses common types of turf struggles, reasons why they occur, and lists a set of recommendations for limiting the negative aspects of turf. “”Collaboration Math”” helps organizations from diverse disciplines work together. It enables them to better understand each other’s perspectives and to identify both strengths and gaps in their partnership. This tool is designed to eliminate misconceptions, clarify the benefits of collaborative participation, determine what needs to be better understood, and identify key players that may be missing.
