Free Prevention Workshops

The Washington State Tobacco Prevention Resource Center offers many free trainings for the prevention community.

Among the upcoming trainings being offered in western Washington that would help with underage drinking prevention, as well as tobacco prevention, are:

Strategies for Community Level Prevention & Change -- Dennis Embry of the PAXIS Institute will be the trainer. He is an expert on low-cost, evidence-based prevention "kernels" that have been proven to influence behavior;

Motivational Interviewing -- a style of interacting founded on the belief that people are more persuaded by what they hear themselves say than by what someone else says or tells them to do;

The Impact of Stereotypes on Ethnically Diverse Groups -- exploring how people have been socialized to think about differences and to increase understanding of how oppressive experiences shape the racial identity of people of color.

It's easy to register online . . . register soon, though. Trainings usually fill up quickly!
