So much of the work of prevention centers on conversations. It is in conversation that the gaps between perceived and actual community norms are explored. At the meeting. In the hallway. Sitting in the bleachers next to another parent. This is where perspectives can be shifted. Equipping coalition team/community members with skills to effectively facilitate these conversations without raising defensiveness provides a significant impact. In these skill-building workshops, Jason will introduce the Science of the Positive Frameworks Seven Core Principles which is the foundation of this training while providing examples of the advantages of this communication style versus other approaches. Registration for this workshop is FREE thanks to supplemental COVID related dollars.
