Coaching, Mentoring, and Sustainability Planning for Substance Abuse Prevention - Wilson, NC
NOTE - This Entry Supports the Wilson, NC Event.
This training is useful for a variety of audiences, such as prevention grantees, coalitions, individuals providing prevention in the community, and local management entities (LMEs). The topic segments – Coaching, Mentoring, Sustainability – are individually applied to program and/or staffing needs; but when combined they build a solid foundation for creating, maintaining, and sustaining programs and people contributing to creating healthier communities.
- Coaching: The coaching portion of the event provides an overview of what coaching is, evaluating the participants coaching style and how to use individual strengths and overcome challenges to develop and encourage prevention and community staff. Four primary coaching styles will be discussed and emphasized.
- Mentoring: This portion focuses on how to effectively mentor individuals doing prevention work – whether that be community members or prevention staff – by providing a standardized skill set and a broader perspective of why this work matters and how it fits into a bigger picture of better health. Purposeful mentoring can create longer-term involvement in prevention projects, deeper understanding of the work within communities, and strengthened long-term staffing in the prevention field.
- Sustainability: This portion provides an overview of what sustainability is including a discussion about organizational and initiative sustainability. The content will also propose a sustainability planning model to adequately equip communities with the ability to plan for the longevity of their organization and their prevention efforts. Sustainability has long been a hurdle in the prevention field and this portion of the training period will aid in the confidence of preventionists in their ability to plan for sustainability beyond funding.
This training is designed for CURES Staff, Mentees, Mentors, and coalition members. The materials provided will be relevant to any substance abuse prevention provider or community coalition member. Seating is limited and will be assigned based on the following priority: CURES Staff, Mentees, Mentors and then coalition members.
The event is intended to serve the professional needs of moderate and/or advanced professionals or anyone interested in improving their ability to better manage community based prevention efforts.
