PRESENTATION: An understanding of community organizing is something that every prevention professional should possess. Effective prevention includes creating coalitions with the support of the target community, knowledge of the demographics and norms of the community, and formation of strategic alliances. A prevention professional must often facilitate community groups, make presentations, and speak in public. This workshop will discuss the role of the prevention professional in all aspects of community organizing. Upon completion of this workshop, participants will:
1. Become familiar with tasks associated with community organizing;
2. Understand how to engage a diverse group of stakeholders in prevention planning activities;
3. Learn how to build community ownership of activities by collaborating in planning, implementing and evaluating prevention strategies;
4. Employ effective facilitation skills; and
5. Identify the principles of public speaking.
