Where Do I Start?
Professional Development for New Prevention Practitioners
Webinar: Wednesday, January 31, 2024
1:00 PM – 2:30 PM (EST)
In the context of substance misuse prevention, professional development involves acquiring the skills and knowledge necessary for both personal development and career advancement. But, for those new to the field, it can be challenging to find and access the type of professional development opportunities that will fuel their growth.
Join us for a deep dive into professional development. Tailored for early career practitioners looking to elevate their prevention practice, we will explore the foundational prevention competencies that every prevention professional should build toward, where to find professional development opportunities to support growing those capacities, and best practices for planning your personal approach to professional development – whether you intend to pursue prevention certification, are seeking career advancement or simply want to improve your own abilities. Our presenters will share practical insights and valuable resources to support your professional development journey, as well as give participants the opportunity to connect to learn from each other’s experiences.
Learning Objectives: As a result of this training, participants will be able to:
  • Define key foundational competencies important for early prevention practitioners to develop
  • List sources (e.g., organizations, websites) providing professional development opportunities for prevention professionals
  • Describe the process for developing a personal approach to professional development
