Description:

Explore cultural competence from a rural perspective. Learn new tools for enhancing the effectiveness of your prevention initiatives and for crafting cultural competence goals and processes for your strategic plans.

This four-session training opportunity for members of the Rural Network will earn participants up to 6 CEUs as we explore this exciting work together and discover how these concepts play out specifically in rural areas.

Objectives:  

By the end of the four 1.5 hour training sessions, participants will have:

  • Defined key terms including diversity, culture, cultural competency, cultural humility, and related skills in the context of rural settings
  • Gained an understanding of the five levels of community engagement, and applied the levels to achieving their community’s prevention goals
  • Developed a strategic plan to engage diverse community sectors in culturally relevant prevention

 

First session held during Rural Network Meeting in April.

Follow three sessions require registration. Please plan to attend all three sequential if you register.
