Training & Technical Assistance is available for groups and organizations in conjunction with any of our Incite Agency for Change services. Here are a few ways that we think we can help.

Virtual or in-person booster sessions following any of our online, virtual, or in-person trainings. These can feature structured dialogue, additional customized scenarios, reinforcement of key learning and relevant policies and procedures, Q&A, and more practice - all important for building confidence and refreshing skills. 
Planning and preparation for an agency-wide rollout. We can work with you to manage all of the logistics, and we are available to consult throughout the entire process of planning, implementation, assessment, and reporting.
Creating a scaffolded approach to your training and prevention efforts. We are eager to get to know you and your agency, and to understand your needs. We know that everyone can have a role in prevention, that different roles require different depths of training and expertise, and that all of these roles can work together to create a network of safety for your clients, staff, families, and community. Let us help build your ideal blueprint.
