Elevating Prevention Efforts with Effective Facilitation

This training has been reported as one of the most impactful trainings many Preventionist have taken. The skills gained in this training will help participants facilitate discussions, meetings, planning sessions, education sessions, community mobilization activities that require group collaboration, and even in everyday relationships. Prevention at its essence is about facilitating change.  Facilitation is not about using force or fear, rather it gets people to think critically and be engaged in processes that create change. Good facilitation requires the mastery of many skills.  An effective facilitator must be knowledgeable of processes that engage people, have emotional intelligence, and manage groups when conflict arises. This is a very intense skill-building training that will improve confidence in a safe environment and will provide participants with a set of tools for activities, planning, and interventions. Participants will receive two incredible resource books in addition to a manual that serves as useful reference.

Special Note: Due to the individual practice this training offers, it is open to only 10 participants. Training schedule: 9:00-5:00.

NOTE: If COVID impacts in-person training, the training will be moved to online during the same time(s) and dates.

Human Development Theories in Substance Use Prevention

As a human develops there are physical, mental, and emotional milestones they work to achieve and are nurtured by family, school, community, and society in general.  Development plays an important role in substance use and misuse. The most effective substance use prevention strategies incorporate an understanding that substance use behaviors can fulfill a variety of developmental needs (Griffin, K. and Botvin, G., 2011). Understanding human development can help preventionist identify what strategies should be employed to increase protective factors and reduce risk factors at various stages of life. This training will explore the journey of human development including several psychological theories (Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, Erikson’s Psychosocial Development Stages, Piaget’s Cognitive Development Stages, and Cognitive-Behavioral). Foundational explanations as to how development can affect regulation and decision making will also be examined. Participants will review examples of prevention strategies that use these theories to help gain a concrete understanding of how human development shapes effective prevention.
