Making Virtual Meetings More Engaging

Never have we been tasked with creating community change with only virtual technology. When we provide prevention services like meetings, increasing knowledge and awareness, and planning sessions virtually, we must do so in a way that creates and maintains enthusiasm for participants.  Effective and engaging meetings require creative uses of technology and thorough preparation. Take away shared space and direct human interaction, the meeting facilitator needs new tools to create community. This training will provide an overview of the elements of effective meetings. We will also review facilitation tips and practice interactive activities geared to virtual meetings. By the end of the training everyone will identify at least 3 ways they will make their meeting(s) more engaging.

Inhalants: What Preventionists Need to Know

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 misuse, symptoms of inhalant misuse, and will review evidence based and best or promising practices to prevent inhalant misuse. This is an instructor lead nine (9) day course, meaning participants will complete the entire training online at their own pace, with the assistance of a facilitator.  This training will provide participants with the knowledge they need to be a resource on inhalant misuse in their community.

Social Host Ordinance: Developing a Plan to Enact and Enforce in Your Community

Social Host ordinances are an environmental prevention strategy that have the potential to reduce some of the harmful consequences alcohol can have on our communities. Like most environmental strategies, planning prevention’s role in the strategy requires careful consideration and partnerships. Special attention will be paid to the roles of education, advocacy, and lobbying so those using federal and state funds will be clear about what they can and can’t do. This training will provide a step-by-step plan to pass a Social Host Ordinance in your city or county. The plan will include determining community readiness; educating stakeholders; engaging community leaders; presenting to the city or county commission; collecting ongoing data; and, informing the community of results.
