This year marks the launch of SAMHSA’s brand new training and technical assistance model for the nation’s prevention workforce, the Prevention Technology Transfer Center. This new model sees the launch of 10 regional PTTCs across the country, ready to support the workforce in translating prevention research into practice. This will be done through a full variety of training and technical assistance programs designed for all levels of experience.
In this 1-hour virtual town-hall meeting, you will be introduced to the New England Prevention Technology Transfer Center, housed and administered by AdCare Educational Institute of Maine, Inc. You will meet the New England PTTC staff, get an overview of the PTTC model, and learn the goals, objectives, and planned services of the program.
At the conclusion of the presentation, the meeting will be opened up to participants for some guided discussion and feedback around the training and prevention workforce development needs in the New England region. This will be an opportunity to provide us with your perspectives and experience to help shape the trainings and technical assistance programs offered in the New England states.
The virtual town-meeting will be held on three different dates via Zoom Video Conferencing:
- January 31st, 1:00-2:00PM
- February 14th, 1:00-2:00PM
- February 21st, 1:00-2:00PM
