This manual provides guidelines for implementing the first 16 sessions, called the "core curriculum", of the DPP lifestyle intervention. The core curriculum ensured that all participants received a standard intervention that could be easily described and translated for use in the future. The materials are only available in English.
This manual provides guidelines for implementing the individual and group sessions after the initial core curriculum. The materials are available in English and some in Spanish.
Participant Handouts. The materials are available in English and some in Spanish.
Updated evidence-based materials are available. The Group Lifestyle Balance (GLB) program was adapted directly from the individually administered DPP Lifestyle Balance intervention for community-based translation and dissemination. A manual with implementation guidelines, and standard participant handout materials, are available for 22 sessions that are implemented over a one-year period (12 core sessions, 4 transitional sessions, and 6 monthly support sessions). All materials are available in English. Most materials are available in Spanish. Copyright 2004; 2008; 2011; 2017 University of Pittsburgh.
