CYFCP

Training

The Center seeks to take best practice and research and translate information into experiential, active training methods by providing Training and Technical assistance to a wide variety of partners across disciplines. The CYCFP assists in the coordination and collaboration of similar projects and curriculum design

Through its association with qualified resources in the community, the CYCFP also offers courses and technical support to assist communities in creating local training teams. With a focus on partnering with family members, CYFCP approaches training in communities as one way to support independent sustainability of ongoing learning.
Through trainer skills development, course offerings, training of trainers, and other avenues for creating learning environments, CYFCP hopes to ensure high quality, family driven training conducted across North Carolina on a regular basis.
Training and technical support is sustained in a variety of ways:

  • Local contracts
  • State contracts
  • Registrations for specific courses offered through CYFCP
  • Training components within grants and initiatives

Addressing Co-Occurring Disorders through Evidence-Based Training

Because of the strong prevalence of co-occurring mental health and substance abuse disorders, a 3-year training series has been developed that aims to build capacity and expertise among providers to assess and treat co-occurring disorders. This training series will coincide with the Cone Health Foundation’s mental health and substance abuse grantee cycle and run from October 2010-September 2013.

Each year, there will be the following types of training offered, with different topics across each year:

  • Webinar Series on Special Populations
  • 1-day Trainings on Evidence-Based Approaches
  • Intensive, Year-Long Training on An Evidence-Based Approach

We will also offer regular consultation with community providers to tailor upcoming trainings based on requests of what is needed in our community.  Please provide your input on what you would like to see throughout the training series.
