The Story Powered Initiative is based out of the Greater Philadelphia Office of the Criminal Justice Research Center at Penn State Abington. Our office produces and participates in research to address issues of stigma, in particular issues surrounding stigma toward substance use. We offer the following resources to highlight our high impact research efforts, and we will continue to update these with our expanding work through the efforts of the Substance Use Stigma Reduction Collaborative within Penn State’s Consortium to Combat Substance Abuse. The Story Powered Initiative is dedicated to research to address stigma in a scientific and evidence based manner. Please look below for some of our featured work. If you have any questions or are interesting in learning more about the research, please contact Dr. Glenn Sterner at [email protected].
