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 family relations. 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 on drug abuse. His theory on behavior change is outlined in his book published by Kluwer Academic/Plenum Publishing Corp.

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 United States Army, prisons, local departments of corrections, and 1000's of schools, professional agencies, mental health centers and community groups over the past 25 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.

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.

Ted N. Strader - Top 100!
...
For his over three decades of committed leadership, profound contribution to multiple fields and life-changing service to youth and families, I believe Ted N. Strader deserves to be recognized with a John C. Maxwell Leadership Award. His 30 + year history of service to youth and families began as a local effort to prevent paint sniffing among youth, and grew into the nationally recognized prevention agency, Council on Prevention and Education: Substances (COPES). His legacy includes leading an effort that successfully integrated a K-12 substance abuse prevention curriculum in both the local public and Catholic school systems. Most profoundly, the Creating Lasting Family Connections® (CLFC) Curriculum Series he developed is now in use in all 50 states, the US Territories, and in several other countries. Those involved in his programs have consistently showed significant increases in 9 crucial relationship skills. His curriculum series has also received an unprecedented 4 Exemplary Awards from the Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP)'s National Prevention Network and three separate listings on the National Registry of Evidence-Based Programs and Practices (NREPP).
...
Ted has a warm approach and responds on a personal basis to each person in his presence. His honesty, openness and frankness creates an immediate connection with almost everyone he encounters. After only a short time in his presence everyone comes to see that this is a special person, a born leader who is willing and able to assist anyone. He gives of himself, not as a job to do, but as an opportunity or a vocation. He is called and he responds. He loves to serve others. He listens to people's concerns and raises their self-confidence. He helps to generate a mutual feeling of respect that creates fertile soil for positive change. I support Ted's nomination for this most prestigious award.
...
Dr. Strader is a very professional, analytical, and kind hearted man with a passion for the work that he does. Although his curricula has gone the rigors of SAMSHA, CSAP, and NREPP, he is open to suggestions for adaptations. The best part about that is when you have a question or concern, you actually talk to him, not a secretary, or a staff member. He has not forgotten where he came from. Leaders don't have followers, they create leaders. Dr. Strader exemplifies this. I submit these comments without reservation. Regardless of the outcome of the competition, He is a winner!
...
Ted exhibits tireless dedication to his work, unending support to his colleagues and staff and unconditional respect and commitment to CLFC program participants. Ted possesses a unique ability to speak the truth, no matter how difficult it may be, and to continually provide a sense of common respect and empathy that enables him to be an effective leader, trainer and facilitator. I believe Ted is deserving of the John C. Maxwell Leadership Award.

Ted worked with the u of L football team when I played ball there. I was not a star player but that didn't matter. Ted had a way of making all of us equal. He worked with the city boys, the country boys like me, the white guys, the African American guys, the rich guys and everybody. He worked with the female athletes too. I know he has programs for kids, parents, teachers, prisoners, gang members, and special women's programs. He designed a special program for African American women called Sisters Who Care that is helping reduce HIV infection and reduce substance abuse. God has used Ted to carry on his work and make a positive impact in people's lives. It doesn't matter what walk of life you came from, there is always a welcome hand and a listening ear. I believe that Ted is deserving of this award and the entire COPES family would appreciate it.

I have the pleasure of collaborating with Ted Strader and COPES for over 10 years. As a helping professional Ted's generosity in donating training materials and workshop fee waivers to my nonprofit organization Peg's Umbrella. Through Ted's generosity I was able to assist over 150 families with the Creating Lasting Families model in the North Carolina area. Ted also serves as my mentor by making sure I am able to grow my business and stay on top of trending programs. I am forever grateful for Ted's generosity in offering COPES programming and services. I truly believe that Ted Strader has great integrity and compassion towards all mankind. For these reason and more I support Ted Strader in the nomination for The John C Maxwell Leadership Award.

Ted Strader and his team have come down to provide coaching, support and training for our coalition with Orange County. Ted is definitely deserving of this leadership award!

I have worked with Ted through evaluating several implementations of the Creating Lasting Families program over the course of the past three years. I have found Ted to genuinely care about the welfare of program participants and their outcomes in life, as opposed to many program developers who are more concerned about how an evaluation reflects upon their ability to make money with their program. Ted and I share a common desire to help families affected by incarceration. He was willing to speak for free (when he was often paid to speak) to a group I work with in the prisons. I consider Ted to be both a friend and colleague.
...
Although I must admit some prejudice because Ted is my brother, I can definitely say he is very deserving of his nomination. He has worked tirelessly for more than thirty years to help people with addictions and family problems regain their lives and sense of dignity. His dedication to counseling has inspired countless other professionals, and his eagerness to share hard -earned knowledge with others in training programs and seminars is nationally recognized. The development of his award-winning curriculums in recent years is just another example of his desire and commitment to building other leaders who can help people in need.

Ted is a great leader, certainly

In the comparatively short time that I have worked at COPES, I have been able to join a team led by Ted Strader that is presenting a high-quality, well-researched program that was developed by Ted. He demonstrates a strong commitment to employee excellence and client growth. He is an innovator and believes strongly that client growth and change requires not only excellent program content but the formation of meaningful personal connections with program participants as well.
...
I have known Ted on a personal level for many years now, and am proud to call him my brother in law. His willingness to want better not just for myself and my family, but for all willing to sit and listen with a positive approach. He has such a strong desire to teach and improve the lives of so many people. I am so proud of him for being nominated for the John C, Maxwell Leadership Award. He is definitely, in my eyes, deserving of such award.

It is with great pleasure that I endorse Ted Strader for the John C. Maxwell Leadership Award. Ted's programs have improved the lives of many people over the years with the programs he developed and authored. As a result of his programs, prisoners have been able to successfully complete his training programs and over 50% will not return to prison. He has given them the tools to become successful law abiding citizens and to be better family leaders. He has also touched the lives of those struggling with addictions and their families giving them a sense of hope, purpose and appreciation for life. His work is based off of proven methods and techniques which are backed by scientific data based off
