Fiscal Management For Those of Us That Are Not Accountants

Did you eagerly sign up to do substance abuse prevention work in your community and now find yourself not only doing prevention work, but also responsible for many fiscal aspects of the grant as well? Does developing budgets, documenting billing costs, working with accounting ledgers for invoicing have you questioning your ability and sanity? This online training is for people well versed in substance abuse prevention, but new to fiscal management and will review essential terms and will allow you to practice with tools you could incorporate into your business practices. This training will expand your financial skill set, making you a well-rounded preventionist.

Successfully Managing Your OSAP Contract
 Location: Albuquerque

Note: This training is only open to OSAP providers.
The Office of Substance Abuse Prevention (OSAP) receives money to fund communities from both federal and state governments. Both of these funding sources have requirements that OSAP must adhere to in order to stay in compliance and maintain funding for the entire state of New Mexico. These requirements trickle down to each OSAP provider into contracts and Scopes of Work (SOW). With decreases in funding availability, it is crucial to manage your OSAP contract and ensure your SOW is fully being met. This training will assist in successfully managing an OSAP contract using proven Project Management tools and techniques. Participants will review tips and practices for: the management plan; budgeting; midyear and final reports; how to work with OSAP when a strategy isn’t working and suggesting a change in SOW; and developing an archiving process for the repository of project’s institutional documents. Note: This training is only open to OSAP providers.

Infusing Mindfulness Into Prevention Efforts
 Location: Albuquerque

Note: this training is now full. If you want to be on the waiting list, click the "Full" button and fill out the form. We will let you know if space comes available

Mindfulness is a practice used by many cultures around the world for centuries. Generally mindfulness is achieved by focusing awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one’s feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations (google dictionary). Why would this be important for a preventionist to be aware of? Mindfulness has been associated with increased abilities to self-regulate, cope with stress, manage difficult feelings, as well as many other benefits. Many evidence-based strategies strive to teach these skills to participants as they have been proven to be effective protective factors. This training will provide an overview of what Mindfulness practice is and how it is applicable to various prevention settings. Participants will engage in hands on experiences and learn core mindfulness skills including increasing their observation abilities and practicing non-judgementalness. Participants will learn activities and exercises they can share with others.
