Many times, preventionists know the process of implementing prevention work in their communities, but often struggle to move beyond planning. Understanding how to work with communities to implement strategies is a necessary first step to being successful change agents in our communities. Utilizing a framework developed through the implementation of Hispanic and Latino community-led prevention in Massachusetts, this training will apply principles of community-led prevention to other diverse prevention settings, providing real life solutions to common barriers and next steps preventionists can take in their own communities.
At the end of this training session, participants will be able to:
- Identify principles of community-led prevention that can be applied to a variety of communities and issues
- Identify solutions to common barriers in community-led prevention
Registrants who fully attend this event or training will receive a certificate of attendance via email within two weeks after the event or training.
