This chapter reviews culturally sensitive approaches to developing evidence-based prevention programs and introduces a two-dimensional framework to incorporating culture into prevention that takes into account knowledge base and effort orientation. We highlight the importance of collaborative preventive efforts between researchers, practitioners, and communities, and provide a detailed description of cultural adaptation and cultural grounding as two collaborative approaches. The chapter concludes with a review of empirical support for culturally sensitive interventions and implementation challenges to culturally sensitive evidence-based prevention programs.
