Ted N. Strader, M.S., C.P.S.

Ted N. Strader has served as Executive Director at the Council on Prevention and Education: Substances, Inc (COPES) since the agency was incorporated in 1981. He earned a Bachelor's degree in English and a Master's degree in Community Development from the University of Louisville. He has extensive professional training in chemical dependency treatment, prevention and in personal, couple and family development. He has assisted in bringing millions of dollars of services to COPES and throughout the Louisville community through grants and contracts. Mr. Strader has published several books, curriculums, articles, films and has presented papers, keynote addresses, seminars and workshops at many local, state and national conferences. His theory on behavior change is outlined in his book published by Kluwer Academic/Plenum Publishing Corp. (2000), entitled Building Healthy Individuals, Families, and Communities: Creating Lasting Connections.
Mr. Strader has served as a consultant on personal and family life skills, recovery skills, fatherhood and motherhood skills, healthy marriage skills, violence prevention, alcohol and drug prevention, HIV prevention, and prison recidivism prevention to innumerable public and private organizations, including national associations, federal agencies, state agencies, hospitals, treatment agencies, universities, athletic departments, the military, prisons, local departments of corrections, and 1000's of schools, professional agencies, mental health centers and community groups over the past 30 years. Mr. Strader was founder of the National Association of Prevention Professionals and Advocates, and is a former member and past President of the National Prevention Faculty.
Mr. Strader is the lead author/program developer for the Creating Lasting Family Connections® Curriculum series which has been used in all 50 states and several other countries. Under his direction, COPES has received several distinctive honors and awards. In the early 90's, Mr. Strader was involved in drug abuse prevention consultation in Ghana, West Africa where he was awarded an Honorary Doctoral Degree in Education by the St. John Bosco's Teachers' Training College. In 1997, Mr. Strader served as a citizen ambassador on substance abuse prevention and traveled to Moscow, St. Petersburg, and Prague to share his knowledge and skills with his international colleagues.
Mr. Strader's programs have received the National Prevention Network's Exemplary Program Award four times (1995, 1999, 2000 and 2010). This four-time recognition by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration's Center for Substance Abuse Prevention, the National Association of State Alcohol and Drug Abuse Prevention Directors and the National Prevention Network is unprecedented. His published curriculum series, Creating Lasting Family Connections®, holds 3 separate listings on the National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP). In 2013, Mr. Strader was listed as one of the top 100 leaders in the U.S. by the John Maxwell Leadership Team.

Ted published Building Healthy Individuals, Families, and Communities: Creating Lasting Family Connections (Strader, Collins and Noe, 2000) with Kluwer Academic/Plenum Publishers in 2000. In the book, Ted demonstrates how connectedness is a critical protective and healing force in human beings -- young or old, rich or poor, male or female. Deep, healthy human connections build strong protective shields (or immunity) to prevent harm and provide both nurturing and healing support, even when challenges penetrate this shield. From this reference, Mr. Strader coined the term, "Connect-Immunity.
