Description

In the field of prevention, it can be easy to forget why we are interested in this line of work and what connects us to the issue of substance use. In this session, participants will develop the skills to effectively share their story. By doing so, participants will use these skills to push forth their community-based efforts and reflect on their own connections and interests to the field of prevention work.

En el campo de la prevención, a veces suele ser fácil olvidar por qué nos interesamos en el trabajo preventivo, lo que nos hizo comenzar, y lo que nos conecta a la problemática del uso de sustancias. En esta sesión los participantes desarrollarán herramientas efectivas para compartir su historia y experiencia con otras personas. Con estas herramientas los participantes podrán continuar sus esfuerzos comunitarios, reflexionando en sus conexiones e intereses comunes dentro del campo de la prevención.
