Writing an Exceptional Grant Application

Writing a grant is an intense activity that can bring much needed funding for prevention services to your community. This training is designed to provide people with limited grant writing experience an overview of the process of researching prospective funding opportunities, assessing opportunities to pursue, and writing an application. Using a sample Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) from the Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP), crucial information and tasks to write a successfully application will be reviewed. You will learn what grantfunders look for including: writing narrative that responds to the funding evaluation criteria, flagging how to adhere to application requirements (e.g., narrative formatting), how to incorporate tables to emphasize demographics (and adhere to page limitations), and put a competitive edge on your project narrative. We will also review how to develop budgets that adhere to allowable activities. Project management tips and tools will be explored that assist with assembling a grant project work team, making task assignments, organizing the narrative and attachments, and creating a checklist for the required documentation.

Substance Use Prevention Skills Training (SUPST)

This training is one of the most important a Preventionist can take.  This “boot camp” uses an interactive format to introduce the history of prevention and examines theories put into practice in our profession. Participants will also take an in depth look at the Strategic Prevention Framework and the activities that fall under each component (assessment, capacity, planning, implementation, evaluation, cultural competence, and sustainability). You will be provided with a manual that will serve as an excellent reference source for years to come. To successfully complete this course participants must complete online work before the afternoon session. If online work is not completed CEHs cannot be issued. Plan on spending 4 full days on this training (8:00-5:00). Online work will open 1 week early to allow people to complete the online portion before the live zoom sessions to make the training more manageable for those who have difficulty spending 7 hours a day on a computer.

Exploring Prevention Ethics in Your Organization’s Services

Incorporating a code of ethics into the way an organization operates requires commitment and intentional work. As preventionist, we have a specific code of ethics that outlines our responsibilities to the public, to service recipients, and to colleagues within and outside of the prevention field. Further, if we are Certified Prevention Specialist, or are pursuing certification, we are required to behave in alignment with this code of ethics. This training will provide participants the opportunity to explore the how the prevention code of ethics is, or is not, supported within their organization. Then, practical ways to strengthen and/or support the prevention code of ethics will be identified. This training is ideal for leaders, managers, coordinators, and experienced preventionist who actively work to improve the effectiveness of prevention services within their organization. Note: This is an advanced training. Participants are required to have taken Ethics for Prevention Professional (or similar introductory prevention ethics training). Prerequisite training will be verified for each participant.

Evolution of Prescription Drugs

Did you know the opioid epidemic we are currently experiencing is considered the 4th wave, or epidemic, the United States has experienced? Our nation has experienced many adverse consequences fueled by prescription drugs. This online training will provide participants a comprehensive overview of prescription drugs. We will journey through history, including how drugs became "prescription" in the first place. We will also identify the most misused prescription drugs. How these drugs affect the body to foster dependence in some people will also be examined. A thorough review of state and federal responses to the public health problems caused by prescription drugs will be studied. Finally, a very general overview of both effective and ineffective prevention strategies will be examined.
