Employing a Wide Range of Tools and Techniques

No one solution fits all for prevention training. We use a wide range of methods to meet the needs of different learners and learning styles – as our stakeholders are of all ages, backgrounds, and experience levels.

We employ classroom-based and virtual classroom training to train in-depth topics and allow participants to practice skills and network with each other. We use online training to get information to our stakeholders as soon as possible and at their own pace. We use networking events for SUP and CSUP providers to allow preventionists to meet others doing similar work to discuss their successes, challenges, and experiences. We use technical assistance to meet individual preventionists where they are and provide individualized consultation to overcome a barrier or address a specific challenge. We have a variety of web-based resources, such as fact sheets, tip sheets, infographics, videos, etc., available to give up-to-date information on various topics.
