Prevention Group

Summit Prevention GroupSummit’s Prevention Group is comprised of seasoned professionals with decades of experience in the education, prevention and assessment fields. Our strategic approach is constructed according to the needs of each particular school or organization and the immediacy of its situation.

We provide assessment, education, prevention and other consulting services to day and residential middle schools, secondary schools and colleges. By identifying broad behavioral trends through data collection and analysis, we are able to design tailor-made prevention strategies to reduce risk among students and to transform your campus culture.

Our authority is derived from Stephen Gray Wallace’s extensive research, as published in his critically acclaimed book Reality Gap – Alcohol, Drugs and Sex … What Parents Don’t Know and Teens Aren’t Telling.

Coupled with his broad experience as a school psychologist and adolescent and family counselor, Summit’s Prevention Group is uniquely positioned to help any educational community. Our transformation model makes us a unique prevention partner, as we engage all segments of the community in the process of creating positive cultural change!

The Steps of Transformation, developed by SurveyTelligence, provide the most powerful set of beacons capable of transforming your campus into a people-aligned powerhouse. The learning and action pathways are designed for the health and safety of your students. This is not a generic solution. After all, no two schools or organizations are alike. We begin by harvesting critical cultural information to measure reality against your vision and values. That information is then sorted and analyzed by our powerful diagnostic software technology. These are the 1st and 2nd steps. Planning and action round out steps three and four.

  • Planning
  • Action

We measure student attitudes and behavior against three uniquely designed and studied youth metrics of success – Decision Factors, Positive Risk-Taking, and Sense of Self – while also tracking environmental risk and protective factors that influence decision-making and overall psychological well-being.

Last but not least, we identify concrete actions a school community can take to influence decision-making.

To augment our work, Stephen offers a School Speaker Series featuring six unique, powerful presentations.
