Positive Culture Framework Skills Trainings

Positive Culture Framework (PCF) Skills trainings are for individuals, organizations, or communities interested in:
  • becoming a more effective prevention leader in your community or organization;
  • communicating effectively to advocate for prevention, health and safety; or,
  • learning how to better understand and align effective strategies.

Leadership Skills

One-Day Training
The Positive Culture Framework Leadership (PCF) Skills Training provides participants an opportunity to grow and practice their leadership abilities. The training focuses on three specific areas of prevention leadership: raising concern about the issue being addressed while providing hope that change is possible; shifting the focus of prevention from changing an individual, to one where change is taking place across the systems in a community to create transformation; and, how to create environments where people choose healthier and safer behaviors for themselves. Prevention practitioners are leaders in both communities and organizations. Leaders cannot force others to change behaviors; however, they can create conditions in which behavior change is more likely.

Integration Skills

One-Day Training
The Positive Culture Framework (PCF) Integration Skills Training provides prevention coordinators an opportunity and the tools to map their current prevention strategies in a way that reveals gaps in services and systems, as well as, provide tips on how to align and leverage prevention strategies for greater impact. Health and safety issues are very complex, and there are no simple solutions to issues like substance abuse, traffic safety or violence. No single strategy that can successfully address these issues; it takes a variety of strategies to create change. The integration, or alignment of prevention strategies within an organization or a community is critical.
The following is a brief webinar on the three main Positive Culture Framework skills: Leadership, Communication, and Integration.
