Event description

Description

Credit Hours: 12 Alcohol & Drug Specific | Maximum Participants: 25

By the end of this course, participants will be able to describe the primary purposes and goals of outreach, clearly communicate their roles and functions as outreach workers to residents when entering a community, and identify ways to obtain information about target communities. Participants will also practice interpersonal communication skills and develop a one-on-one approach to educating street contacts about HIV/AIDS. Participants will also identify the impact of drug abuse and addiction in target communities, and identify the unique challenges for effective prevention education. Participants will be able to implement a decision-making model to respond appropriately to typical crisis that arise during outreach. They will also identify several common community outreach challenges that can compromise the outreach worker’s credibility and strategies to effectively handle these challenges. This training is appropriate for both new and veteran outreach workers.
