Strategy Mapping for Successful Implementation

Implementing strategies can pose challenges due to various factors. In particular, environmental strategies often lack specific guidance on the necessary activities, as community capacity, resources, and readiness can differ from one community to another. This training aims to establish outcome-based planning as the fundamental approach to strategy implementation in your community. With outcome-based planning, you will be required to identify the desired results of your strategy and align your activities and tasks accordingly. Additionally, participants will utilize project management tools to identify and prioritize tasks, ultimately developing an action plan to accomplish those tasks. Throughout the training, participants will work with a strategy that is currently being implemented, enabling them to apply the concepts learned. By the end of the training, you will have a visual map and an actionable plan that can be put into immediate use. Please note that participants will need a computer with Excel installed and an OSAP-funded strategy to work on during the training. This training is for OSAP programs only.

Effective Messaging on a Shoestring Budget: Substance Use Prevention Edition

Effective messages play a pivotal role in shaping attitudes, behaviors, and policies related to substance use, making them a crucial component of prevention strategies. Most effective message campaigns have a specialized team and funding behind them. This training is made for programs that have limited time and budget but need to incorporate social media into their strategies. In this training participants will review elements of effective messaging, develop a message using Canva, use Chat GPT to assist with message content, and learn how to examine Meta analytics (Facebook and Instagram) to measure message reach and impact. Note: participants must have an account with Canva (can be the free version) and ChatGPT (https://chat.openai.com).

Human Development Theories in Substance Use Prevention

As a human develops there are physical, mental, and emotional milestones they work to achieve and are nurtured by family, school, community, and society in general.  Development plays an important role in substance use and misuse. The most effective substance use prevention strategies incorporate an understanding that substance use behaviors can fulfill a variety of developmental needs (Griffin, K. and Botvin, G., 2011). Understanding human development can help preventionist identify what strategies should be employed to increase protective factors and reduce risk factors at various stages of life. This training will explore the journey of human development including several psychological theories (Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, Erikson’s Psychosocial Development Stages, Piaget’s Cognitive Development Stages, and Cognitive-Behavioral). Foundational explanations as to how development can affect regulation and decision making will also be examined. Participants will review examples of prevention strategies that use these theories to help gain a concrete understanding of how human development shapes effective prevention.

Foundations of Coalition Building

Coalitions can bring a powerful approach to substance use prevention in communities, bringing together diverse sectors to join varied expertise, resources, and perspectives. This leads to more effective, comprehensive strategies. Building an effective coalition requires establishing foundational elements that guide direction and motivation towards promoting health and wellness. This training will examine core components, including the coalition's values and mission, and discuss how these crucial elements steer our strategies and community engagement. Participants will learn the importance of aligning actions with these principles, enhancing our collective approach. We will also cover essential aspects of coalition operation such as roles, responsibilities, and decision-making processes. Additionally, participants will engage with an action planning process for a specific strategy, illustrating how various community sectors can contribute effectively.
