David L. Snow, Ph.D. is Professor Emeritus in the Departments of Psychiatry and Epidemiology & Public Health, Yale University School of Medicine.
Over a 40 year career, Dr. Snow had extensive experience in the design and evaluation of preventive interventions in community settings, primarily schools and the workplace, and in research aimed at identifying key risk and protective factors predictive of psychological and substance use outcomes. Dr. Snow has special interests in the protective and stress-mediating effects of coping and social support, methodological and ethical issues in prevention research, and technical assistance and organizational consultation. His school-based research involved the development and testing of a decision-making and skill building curriculum implemented in the classroom aimed at promoting socio-emotional development and preventing substance abuse. His workplace research has been conducted in an array of work settings ranging from manufacturing to utility and telecommunications companies, as well as a broad spectrum of private, non-profit organizations. Coping with Work and Family Stress: A Workplace Preventive Intervention was developed as part of this research and has been designated as an Evidence-Based Intervention through the National Registry of Effective Programs and Practices (NREPP) and as a SAMHSA Model Program.
