The CADE Fall Training provides an opportunity for collegiate prevention teams from across Colorado to gather, share and learn.
The Coalition of Colorado Campus Alcohol and Drug Educators (CADE) invites prevention teams from across the state to join us for a one day training in Denver, CO. The CADE Fall Training will allow collegiate prevention teams to engage in networking, hear updates from CADE Staff and share lessons learned from current project campuses.
All institutions of higher education in Colorado are invited to attend this training. There is no fee to attend the training and the CADE will provide both breakfast and lunch during the event. The training will be held at the Denver Marriott City Center (1701 California Street, Denver, CO).
This event is most likely to influence these groups.
Let others know you are coming!
A block of rooms has been reserved for attendees at the Denver Marriott City Center. The CADE can provide one hotel room for each campus traveling to Denver. Please contact Laurie to coordinate reservations. The Hotel Block Deadline is October 6th, 2017.
Prevention professionals are encouraged to utilize the SAMHSA’s Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF) as a model to cultivate “a comprehensive process that addresses substance misuse and related behavioral health problems facing their communities” (SAMHSA, 2017). With a rapidly changing cultural landscape at our institutions, it is vital that campus professionals are equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge to address the varying needs of their community. In this interactive session, participants will be provided the tools and strategies needed to refine their ability to work across cultures to successfully adopt a process that acknowledges difference, values identities and experiences, and addresses the needs of their community by refining their cultural competency skills.
