POSTPONED - Northwest PTTC Prevention Leadership Academy: A Liberating Structures approach

The goal of the Northwest PTTC Prevention Leadership Academy is to engage leaders in the prevention workforce to identify and build upon their strengths in creative problem-solving, strategic planning and charismatic communication. Our aim is to do so through a hands-on experiential learning process in a face-to-face format. Based on results from the Northwest’s 2018-2019, Prevention Workforce Needs Assessment and Advisory Council feedback, the Prevention Leadership Academy will focus on building collaborative structures to enhance leadership skills and that flatten hierarchy. Specific goals for the academy include:

  • Use of self-assessment tools so leaders can identify their strengths and areas of practice they would like to improve;
  • Participation in a set of Liberating Structures activities that can be used to engage others in their organizations and communities; and
  • Development of a leadership capacity plan to implement following the academy.

NWPTTC staff is collaborating with facilitators of Liberating Structures to present the academy.

The Northwest is offering participant support for a small number of individuals. Priority will be given to substance misuse prevention practitioners who do not have access to funding for travel through their workplace and who work in community-based organizations located in HHS Region 10 states.

Individuals interested in receiving participant support funds must complete & submit the following Participant Support Application Form.
