Certified Prevention Specialist Test Preparation (CPSTP)

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 Abuse Prevention Specialist Training (within the past 5 years) and Prevention Ethics. This training will meet for 4 mornings (9:00-12:00).

Inhalants: What Preventionists Need to Know

This training is designed to provide substance use prevention professionals with a comprehensive understanding of inhalant use. Inhalants may not frequently dominate substance use discussions, yet the 2021 NM Youth Risk and Resiliency Survey revealed that 6.6% of middle school students in New Mexico have experimented with inhalants. The initiation of inhalant use at an early age can lead to significant adverse effects on youth. Participants will delve into various substances that are inhaled for their psychoactive effects, examining both the immediate and enduring consequences of inhalant use, identifying symptoms of use, and evaluating evidence-based strategies alongside promising practices for prevention. This instructor-led online course ensures participants are well-informed and supported throughout their learning journey. By the end of the training, participants will not only possess a thorough knowledge of inhalant use and its community impact but also create a PowerPoint presentation to utilize as a practical resource in their preventive efforts.
