Implementing Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services (CLAS) in Your Community

Implementing effective substance use prevention services requires knowledge and skill in many areas beyond the strategy or program itself. Two important areas are cultural appropriateness and the use of familiar and inclusive language. Strategies and programs need to resonate with the people participating so the skills, knowledge, perceptions, awareness, and attitudes of these services can transfer into their lives. Providing appropriate cultural and linguistic prevention services requires self-awareness and intentional planning. This training provides participants an introduction to concepts like culture, cultural identity, bias, intersectionality, stereotypes, and microaggressions. Then national standards for culturally and linguistically appropriate services (CLAS) will be reviewed and used to identify specific examples of how the standards are currently being used in your prevention work. Finally, we will explore how culturally relevant communication and language assistance could be added into existing services.

Substance Use Prevention Skills Training (SUPST)

This training is one of the most crucial for Preventionists and has recently been updated. The "boot camp" utilizes an interactive format to provide insights into the history of prevention and examines theories applied in our profession. Participants will delve deep into the Strategic Prevention Framework and explore the activities encompassing each component (assessment, capacity, planning, implementation, evaluation, cultural proficiency, and sustainability). Notably, updates made in 2023 have been made to address health disparities, health equity, the relationship between harm reduction and prevention, as well as cultural proficiency and sustainability. Additionally, more comprehensive guidance on strategies to enhance capacity is now available. You will receive a manual that serves as an excellent reference source for years to come.

NOTE: If COVID impacts in-person training, this will be moved to online during the same times.
