Nothing About Us Without Us: Best Practices for Community-led Prevention

DESCRIPTION:

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.

 

 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

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

 

 

CERTIFICATES:

Registrants who fully attend this event or training will receive a certificate of attendance via email within two weeks after the event or training.
