In collaboration with BSAS and the Center for the Application of Prevention Technologies (CAPT), MassTAPP has organized the Substance Abuse Prevention Skills Training (SAPST) to be held May 1 – 4, 2018 (4 full days) at Education Development Center (EDC) in Waltham, MA. While the SAPST is required for all BSAS-funded grant coordinators, there will be spots in this year’s training open to representatives of MOAPC and SAPC cluster communities, as well as members of unfunded communities interested in expanding their prevention work.
The SAPST is an intensive, foundational course in substance abuse prevention, grounded in current research and the SAMHSA’s Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF) model, which blends an in-person component with online learning. The course enhances the knowledge and skills necessary to implement effective, data-driven prevention programs, practices, and polices that can reduce behavioral health disparities and improve wellness. This course will be tailored to BSAS grantees and, given the wide range of experience among participants, will provide many opportunities for coordinators to learn from each other. Continuing Education Credits will be available for this class.
