Structuring Your Prevention Program for Success

Date: 
December 13, 2017 -
1:00pm to 2:30pm
Type: 
webinar
Description: 

This webinar will explore strategically structuring prevention sessions, as well as ensuring sessions and programs are connected to the broader prevention vision and goals. The trainer will give attendees ideas on how to design prevention sessions that utilize effective and engaging practices, such as setting specific and achievable learning objectives and incorporating diverse teaching techniques that are respective of multiple learning styles. Oftentimes preventionists are asked to cover a variety of topics in their presentations, which can result in a disjointed and confused message, therefore attendees will also learn how to sequence lessons so that they reinforce and build upon each other. Finally, the trainer will share strategies to achieve the identified goals of the agency prevention program, such as coordinating messages and threads of prevention across various programs to build towards greater impact in the community over time. This is an intermediate webinar and will not cover basic concepts of sexual violence primary prevention; and will focus on the structure and planning of sessions, not session content, making this applicable to a variety of prevention strategies and communities.
