Ethics for American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) Prevention Practitioners Training of Trainers


This in-person Training of Trainers (ToT) prepares participant trainers to deliver the Northwest PTTC AI/AN Ethics. The 2-day training will focus on building participants' capacity to train the curriculum content, facilitate activities, and address challenging questions or scenarios that may emerge during the training. The ToT includes opportunities for all participants to teach-back key training content and activities. 

The ToT prepares individuals to address the role and application of ethics in substance misuse prevention in American Indian and Alaska Native communities and organizations. Using culturally tailored case examples and interactive activities participants will explore the six standards in the Prevention Code of Ethics and learn to use a four-step decision-making process to assess, address, and evaluate a range of ethical issues. This training prepares practitioners to:

  • Explore the role of ethics in their daily prevention work in AI/AN organizations and communities
  • Describe the Prevention Code of Ethics’ six key principles and engage in discussions on ethical issues presented in various scenarios
