Prevention Institute

Building on earlier work of the Prevention Institute, which described the coalition start-up process in Developing Effective Coalitions: An Eight Step Guide, this document was developed in response to something commonly experienced within coalitions: turf struggle. Turf issues that commonly arise among coalition members are explored and a set of recommendations for limiting the negative aspects of turf struggles is offered.
