Certified Prevention Specialist Test Preparation

This training is for people who have met criteria to apply for their Certified Prevention Specialist Credential and will be testing within the next 6 months. Becoming a Certified Prevention Specialist requires you know the entire breadth of prevention, even things that are not in your scope of work. This training will provide a brief overview of the history/building blocks of prevention and then will move into a review the six domains you will be tested on: Planning/Evaluation; Prevention Education/ Service Delivery; Communication; Community Organization; Public Policy and Environmental Change; and Professional Growth/Responsibility. Because this is test preparation, you must come to this training with a working knowledge of each of these areas. Participants will also explore sample test questions and discuss test taking strategies. This training has been updated to meet the new test that was updated in March of 2023. Prerequisite: Participants must have taken the Substance Use Prevention Specialist Training (within the past 5 years) and Prevention Ethics. This training will meet for 4 mornings (9:00-12:00). Participants must be able to attend each session in its entirety.

Implementing Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services (CLAS) in Your Community

Implementing effective substance use prevention services requires knowledge and skill in many areas beyond the strategy or program itself. Two important areas are cultural appropriateness and the use of familiar and inclusive language. Strategies and programs need to resonate with the people participating so the skills, knowledge, perceptions, awareness, and attitudes of these services can transfer into their lives. Providing appropriate cultural and linguistic prevention services requires self-awareness and intentional planning. This training provides participants an introduction to concepts like culture, cultural identity, bias, intersectionality, stereotypes, and microaggressions. Then national standards for culturally and linguistically appropriate services (CLAS) will be reviewed and used to identify specific examples of how the standards are currently being used in your prevention work. Finally, we will explore how culturally relevant communication and language assistance could be added into existing services.
