Training workshops are custom-designed to meet the specific needs of each group. Advance planning meetings with key stakeholders are held and pre-training surveys or interviews are conducted to obtain input for the training design and content. The general approach to extended training is divided into four steps.
The first step is to develop a sense of community, where participants make human connections with each other, using creative, culturally appropriate activities.
The next steps enhance the group's knowledge and understanding of the identified issues or topics. This is done partly through presentation of research and other data, and is mixed with a healthy dose of interactive activities to support the learning and keep the group engaged.
Next, the participants learn useful skills that can be applied in everyday life. Whenever appropriate, various models are introduced to the group for discussion and practice. The participants may discuss challenging scenarios, develop role plays, and other creative methods.
And finally, each individual identifies personal and organizational action steps and makes verbal or written commitments to follow through on taking action.
