Training Services: The 3-day training is designed to be delivered to a group of 10-12 people at a time. Agencies send their PHA(s) and manager(s) to the training, which either takes place at CAI's offices or at a central location, depending on the number of agencies interested in implementing the intervention in the area. During this training, PHAs and managers develop the necessary knowledge, skills, and attitudes to deliver the intervention with fidelity, including identifying agency-specific implementation and monitoring strategies.
Training Materials: We will provide the Participant Training Manual, Training DVD and Training PowerPoint Presentations. The Participant Training Manual contains all the handouts and worksheets that accompany the training. The training DVD is a one-hour video that has an introduction from the original researcher, Dr. Crosby, and shows the 45-60 minute intervention in its entirety. The video is used in the training and can be used to review the intervention as a post-training activity. The PowerPoint presentations accompany the training and contain valuable information for Peer Health Advisors and their supervisors.
