2019 Moving from Awareness to Comprehensive Prevention: Statewide Training


2 1/2-Day Comprehensive Violence Prevention Training


UPDATE: This training is full. However, you may email a request to be added to the Wait List at


As more and more people are interested in and required to implement effective prevention programming related to interpersonal, sexual, and gender based violence in an ongoing and consistent manner, many practitioners struggle to fulfill mandates and better provide for the needs of their communities in ways that are both 1) cost effective and 2) rooted in best practices. SATF’s Comprehensive Prevention Training is informed by national evidence for effective prevention as well as Oregon specific best-practice implemented by Oregon prevention practitioners and statewide collaborations.

As a result of attending this two-and-a-half-day training, participants will be better prepared to implement comprehensive, effective prevention efforts in their communities, institutions, and schools.

Who is this training for: Community Based Preventionists, Campus Practitioners, Student Leaders, Educators and School Administrators, and other folks throughout Oregon implementing or wanting to implement effective prevention efforts rooted in best-practice.

This training covers topics such as:  Models and Theories of Prevention, Anti-Oppression and Prevention, Healthy Relationships and Sexuality Promotion, Evaluation of Prevention, Intersections of Response and Prevention, Community and Participant Leadership, Prevention Facilitation Strategies, Action Planning, and more!

Participants will leave with: Tangible Tools to Inform their Prevention Efforts, Resources to Enhance their Practice, and Connections to Participate in Ongoing Learning and Support.

Participants will first be introduced to components of effective programming (including the Nine Principles of Effective Prevention Programs and the public health approach). The purpose of orienting participants with this information first is to build a shared understanding that good programming doesn’t just happen…it is intentional and theory-driven. Good programs need strong foundations in order to survive staff turnover, keep students engaged, maximize resources and effectively reduce violence. Participants will then combine their knowledge of best practices/theory and be asked to think about prevention in relation to their personal role and available resources.They will be guided through planning for and implementing efforts while considering ways to think “outside the box” when developing/implementing their strategies. Participants will leave with handouts and web resources to assist them in their prevention work.
