Seats for the Substance Abuse Prevention Skills Trainings (SAPSTs) are limited. In an effort to accommodate all requests we have received for this training we would like to encourage you to review the DSHS requirements for the SAPST. Individuals have 18 months after their hire date to attend this training. If you or your staff do not need this training within the next 1-6 months, please consider attending a training later this Fiscal Year.
This innovative training, combining online and in-person components, offers practitioners a comprehensive introduction to the substance abuse prevention field. Grounded in current research and SAMHSA’s Strategic Prevention Framework, the SAPST is designed to help practitioners develop the knowledge and skills needed to implement effective, data-driven prevention that reduces behavioral health disparities and improves wellness. It is appropriate for entry-level prevention practitioners, as well as professionals working in related fields.
The SAPST consists of a five-hour, self-paced online module, followed by a four- day/27-hour interactive, in-person training.
The training includes two components: An online course entitled “Introduction to Substance Abuse Prevention: Understanding the Basics” AND an in-person training. Registrants MUST participate in both components.
This foundational course offers practitioners new to the field of prevention, or working in related fields, an introduction to the history of prevention, key concepts and definitions, specific drug effects, and an exciting glimpse into the effects of substance use and addiction on the brain. Participants will learn about:
• Basic terminology and facts
• History of substance use and prevention in the U.S.
• Addiction and the brain
• Effects and health risks of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs
This 4-day training addresses the following topics:
Institute of Medicine’s Continuum of Care
Public health approach
Risk and protective factors
Application of SAMHSA’s Strategic Prevention Framework:assessment, capacity, planning, implementation, and evaluation
Cultural competence and sustainability
