Inhalants: What Preventionists Need to Know - Online Training

This course is designed to provide substance abuse preventionists with an overview of inhalant abuse. Though not a lot of attention is paid to inhalants, according the 2013 NM Youth Risk and Resiliency Survey, they are one of the top 3 abused drugs by middle school students. The early use of this drug can have profound impacts on our kids. Participants will explore what substances people inhale for intoxicating effects, the short and long term effects of inhalant abuse, symptoms of inhalant abuse, and will review evidence based and best or promising practices to prevent inhalant abuse. This is an instructor led ten (10) day course, meaning participants will complete the entire training online with the guidance and assistance of a facilitator. This training will provide participants with the knowledge they need to be a resource on inhalant abuse in their community. Participants go at their own pace to complete 6+ hours of online work. Please plan ahead and set aside sufficient time to complete the class.

Evaluation Fundamentals for Prevention Programs

When you are doing prevention work and interacting with the community, you see and feel you are making a difference. Evaluation gives us the opportunity to document and show the value of our prevention programs to ourselves and others. It also helps us see areas we can improve in for maximum impact. This training will provide participants with an overview of evaluation key concepts and evaluation approaches. We will walk through components of multi-level evaluation plans including assessment, theory of change, developing evaluation questions, identifying data sources, methodology, and analysis. Participants will engage in activities to give them a better understanding of the components of evaluation, roles of an evaluator and how to incorporate evaluation into every level of programming. By the end of the workshop participants will be able to describe why evaluation is critical to prevention and public health.

Disabilities: Understanding the Diversity of Learning

NOTE: Feel free to register for this training, however, given that it is an in-person training, we may need to cancel if we cannot hold face-to-face trainings at that time. We will notify you as soon as possible if it needs to be cancelled. The World Health Organization estimates that 15% (over a billion) of the world population has a disability. In the United States, 61 million adults and 17% of children ages 3 – 17 have a disability. In New Mexico, the 2017 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) identified 26.5% of the adult population identifies with having a disability. Disabilities go beyond affecting people physically, whether it is short-term or long-term. Learning disabilities create a difference in the way an individual processes and comprehends information. Because learning disabilities are “invisible,” it is easy to exclude this population in our work. There are several methods to being dismissive and inclusive in the way we deliver trainings, instructions, presentations, visual aids, and programs. This training will help preventionists understand the various aspects of disability and how to be inclusive in their prevention practice and workplace approaches. Participants will learn about disability policy, understanding the various learning disabilities (e.g. ADHD, dyslexia, mental health, memory retrieval, etc.), theories, models, universal design, and respectful language. Preventionists will gain hands-on experience and knowledge to be supportive of diverse learners.

Successfully Managing Your OSAP Contract

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; 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.
