The Montana Institute 2019 - Reasons for HOPE: Building Positive, Healthy, Resilient Communities
There are so many reasons for HOPE! This summer, Dr. Jeff Linkenbach and the dynamic Montana Summer Institute faculty will share cutting-edge science, tools and resources for building healthy, resilient communities. The 2019 Montana Institute will focus on how Science of the Positive, Positive Community Norms, and Health Outcomes from Positive Experience (H.O.P.E) are creating new opportunities in prevention and driving community transformation on a wide range of health and safety issues. Join us in beautiful Big Sky to learn how positive, norms-based approaches can power up your public health and prevention practices, improve your leadership skills, and increase the effectiveness and sustainability of your projects.
This event is perfect for prevention leaders working on underage, college, and adult substance use; child abuse prevention; distracted & impaired driving; marijuana legalization; sexual assault and dating violence; opioid abuse, and more.
Choose from three exciting pre-institute tracks:
- Sign up for our Positive Community Norms Intensive Seminar for a deep dive into how this approach works. This day-long event will provide the information and insights you need to get a new campaign up and running or keep an existing effort on track for success.
- Enroll in our groundbreaking Health Outcomes from Positive Experience (H.O.P.E.) Seminar and develop a better understanding of the effects of positive childhood experiences on the brain’s growth and development. H.O.P.E. provides a powerful complement to ACES-based work that opens exciting new opportunities for promoting health in children and adults.
- Or spend the day in our interactive workshop on Screening and Brief Interventions for Alcohol, Marijuana, Sexual Assault and Suicide Risk for training on how non-judgmental, non-confrontational motivational interviewing strategies can be applied to other brief interventions, especially those that utilize normative feedback.
