Rapid Qualitative Analysis: practicing a team-based approach to the interpretation of qualitative data for substance use prevention

Qualitative data is essential to support any effective prevention and improves work in every step of the Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF) process. Qualitative data helps identify emergent trends and challenges, community needs and values, and possible solutions to overcome obstacles. It adds the voice of community members to your work. While many preventionists have experience and training with live qualitative data collection such as interviews and focus groups, interpreting and using the data you collect can be quite challenging, especially when multiple parties are involved. In this training, we will briefly review qualitative data collection techniques and use this to focus our attention to the practice of data collection and interpretation. Pre-requisite Knowledge: Have a working understanding of qualitative data collection and the SPF process.

Introduction to Evaluation of Prevention Programs

A critical element of effective prevention is evaluation. Evaluation gives us the opportunity to document and show the value of our prevention strategies to ourselves and others. It also helps us see areas we can improve in for maximum impact. Though many grants or funding opportunities require an external evaluator, preventionists need to be confident in their evaluation knowledge and skills so they can use this information in their work. This training will provide participants with an overview of key evaluation concepts (e.g., using a logic model to plan evaluation efforts, outcome and process evaluation, indicators). Participants will also explore how to use evaluation data to monitor and make adjustments to strategies. This is an introductory course and is designed for those new to prevention and evaluation or those who would like to solidify their knowledge of evaluation fundamentals.

LGBTQ 101 for Substance Use Prevention Specialists

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning people face special barriers to accessing behavioral health services, including prevention and treatment. At the same time, this is a group of people who are at a disproportionate risk for substance misuse and disorders. Data has shown us that LGBTQ folks are more likely to experience depression, anxiety and suicidal ideation - and to self-medicate with drugs and alcohol. This workshop will give you a chance to familiarize yourself with language, data and etiquette pertaining to this population, and to increase your confidence in working with LGBTQ people in your community. This training will focus on building your capacity to be welcoming and inclusive to people who are in great need of compassionate and effective prevention services.

Mandatory Reporting for Preventionists: Doing Our Part to Keep the Most Vulnerable Safe

Mandatory reporting is everyone’s responsibility in NM but without training the process can be overwhelming. Join us for an interactive trauma-informed training on mandatory reporting. We will learn the signs of abuse, neglect and exploitation, better understand the mandatory reporting law and process, and receive information to make the process more straight-forward. We will also take time to address the emotional aspect of mandatory reporting, identifying our own trauma triggers, working through any ambivalence we have about the process and creating a plan for self-care and support.

Developing Strong Relationships with Law Enforcement and Elected Officials

Law enforcement and elected officials can be an asset to a comprehensive prevention approach in your community. For many strategies their participation is required for us to be successful and produce the results we are working toward. Building these partnerships takes time and requires ongoing collaboration, and is also a key benchmark in many of our prevention strategies. This training will use one community’s experience and success as a case study example to identify ways to engage law enforcement and elected officials. We will also explore how prevention programs can be an asset to law enforcement resulting in sustainable prevention efforts.

Building a Strong Foundation for Your Coalition

Coalitions are vital to successful prevention efforts. No one organization can implement the comprehensive strategies that need to be in place to produce positive community change. Why should people in your community care about the coalitions work? Why should they be a part of the coalition? In this interactive training, participants will gain an understanding of the concepts for fostering coalitions and networks and learn how to apply these within their coalitions. Coalition fundamentals such as various organizational structures that will allow for shared leadership and shared decision making and roles and responsibilities of coalition members will be reviewed. Recruitment and retention strategies and how they related to community mobilization will be discussed. You will leave this training with clear manageable next steps to strengthen your coalition efforts.

Preventing Youth Fentanyl Overdoses

Fentanyl overdoses are now the leading cause of death for youth and people between the ages of 18-45 (CDC, 2022), with the rate of teen deaths doubling over the past two years. There are daily news reports of students as young as middle school tragically dying of a fentanyl overdose. We urgently need to develop and implement comprehensive strategies to help keep our youth safe from this deadly substance. This workshop will provide up-to-date information about the impact of fentanyl on youth. Participants will learn about fentanyl and other synthetic opioids. A variety of promising prevention strategies will be presented which can be adapted for your community, including lessons for secondary students, parents and community members. In addition, the following critical issues related to tackling this crisis will also be discussed: harm reduction and youth substance use, intentional vs. unintentional overdoses and the role of stigma.

New Mexico Retail Alcohol Policy: Leveraging the Retail Environment to Reduce Alcohol-Related Problems

Establishments that sell and serve alcohol play a complex role in prevention. While these outlets are a crucial part of local economies, they can also contribute to problems related to excessive drinking and underage drinking in our communities. This training will help you support local businesses who hold liquor licenses to comply with the laws and partner with prevention to improve community well-being. Participants will learn about best practices in preventing sales and service to intoxicated persons and minors in both on and off premise establishments. We will also explore the impacts of recent statewide policy changes and learn about key alcohol control policies that might have a positive impact at the local or state level.

Using Trauma Sensitive Approaches to Build Community

Effective prevention requires individual meetings, small and large group gatherings, community events, educational sessions, and many other inter-personal interactions. Creating safety and trust in these environments is a foundational piece of community and relationship building. Trauma can affect a person’s participation and behavior at these types of events. This training will provide an overview of how trauma impacts human physiology, brain development, the stress response system and ultimately behavior. Participants will explore stress and trauma in the context of day-to-day stressors as well as the implications and impact of childhood adversity on adult health and wellbeing.  Participants will identify specific ways they can create safety through actions and words and will feel more prepared to use trauma sensitive approaches in their work.

Making Virtual Meetings More Engaging

Virtual meetings are now a part of the necessary tools a preventionists must use to build and strengthen community. When we provide prevention services like meetings, increasing knowledge and awareness, and planning sessions virtually, it’s in our best interest to 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 as well as interactive activities that encourage participation. We will also review some facilitation tips throughout the training. By the end of the training everyone will identify at least 3 ways they will make their meeting(s) more engaging.

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.

Renewing Our Energy and Framing Our Prevention Communications Using Hope and Concern

Prevention can get heavy. When we look at data and focus on the consequences of substance misuse our world can start to turn grey if we let it. This training will explore the Science of the Positive and how we can turn heavy messages (think overdose or underage drinking) into information that will resonate with our community. This dynamic and skill-building workshop will begin with an overview of the Science of the Positive and allow participants to reframe their prevention goals by focusing on the health and safety they are looking to increase in their communities.  We will also practice how to frame prevention communications by incorporating both hope and concern.   Participants will be introduced to effective communication strategies and provided opportunities to practice and build their communication skills.
