Join Us for PCCG Prevention Courses in July!

GUIDE is excited to announce another full week of Prevention Training taking place July 21-25! This is a fantastic opportunity to take all four PCCG core courses in one week. Don’t miss out!

What’s PCCG Anyway?

IMG_4035The Prevention Credentialing Consortium of Georgia (PCCG) is a 501(c)6 organization with committees covering credentialing, recertification, training, public relations, resource development and prevention ethics. PCCG works to advance the prevention field by promoting credentialing standards of excellence. To fulfill one of the requirements to become a credentialed Preventionist in the state of Georgia, applicants must attend all four core courses (Fundamentals of Prevention, Ethics in the Prevention Field, Cultural Competency for the Prevention Professional and Communication Skills for the Prevention Professional). We’ve made this super easy for you! We’re offering all four in just one week!

To learn about additional requirements for credentialing, click here.

What Will I Learn?

Participants will learn about and explore an array of pertinent topics including, but not limited to:

  • 177Protective and risk factors;
  • Prevention processes/programs that represent each prevention strategy;
  • What works in prevention;
  • Defining prevention strategies;
  • Outline of historical timeline in prevention;
  • Basic introduction to the Principles of the Code of Ethical Conduct for Prevention;
  • Ethical principles using the interactive methods and role-plays that encourage and support adult learning;
  • Interpersonal communication skills, facilitation, public speaking and good listening skills; and
  • Cultural diversity and prejudices in a safe environment in order to learn how to increase cultural competence and create safe spaces in your programs and organizations.

Participants will learn all of the above AND have fun at the same time. It doesn’t get better than that!

I Can’t Attend All of the Trainings that Week. Can I Register for Just One?

Attend one, or attend them all! To find out more about the individual training opportunities, see below.

Fundamentals of Prevention (A PCCG Core Course)

Date: Monday, July 21 – Tuesday, July 22
Time: 9 am – 4:30 pm
By:  GUIDE, Inc. Staff
Cost: $100 per person

Description:  This course, approved by the Prevention Credentialing Consortium of Georgia as a Core Course, will provide a basic foundation of prevention knowledge that can be further expanded through ongoing prevention training and development. 

Ethics in the Prevention Field (A PCCG Core Course)

Date:  Wednesday, July 23
Time:  9 am – 4:30 pm
By:  GUIDE, Inc. Staff
Cost:  $60 per person

Description: This course, approved by the Prevention Credentialing Consortium of Georgia as a Core Course, is designed to provide a basic introduction to the Principles of the Code of Ethical Conduct for Prevention, Early Intervention and Health Promotion Professionals and Volunteers. It will also provide an overview of the ethical dilemmas that Prevention Professionals encounter in their work. Using the Code of Ethics from the Prevention Think Tank as a framework, participants will explore ethical principles using interactive methods and role-plays that encourage and support adult learning.

Communication Skills for the Prevention Professional (A BRAND NEW PCCG Core Course)

Date: Thursday, July 24
Time:  9 am – 4:30 pm
By: GUIDE, Inc. Staff
Cost: $60 per person

Description:  This course, approved by the Prevention Credentialing Consortium of Georgia as a Core Course, is a response to the prevention domain changes made by IC&RC. In order for prevention professionals to be prepared to interview or test for their prevention credentials, they will need this core course that will focus on interpersonal communication, facilitation, public speaking and good listening skills as well as public awareness campaigns and marketing basics.

Cultural Competency for the Prevention Professional (A PCCG Core Course)

Date:  Friday, January 17
Time: 9 am – 4:30 pm
By:  GUIDE, Inc. Staff
Cost:  $60 per person

Description:  This course, approved by the Prevention Credentialing Consortium of Georgia as a Core Course, will give Prevention Professionals a refresher in cultural awareness and appropriateness in the prevention field.  At a young age most people learn how to recognize differences more quickly than similarities, and how to dislike others who are not like us. In our ever-increasing diverse communities, understanding, tolerance and appreciation for differences is necessary to running effective prevention programs. This session will include activities and discussions exploring cultural diversity and prejudices in a safe environment in order to learn how to increase cultural competence and create safe spaces in your programs and organizations.  Bring an open mind, as we will discuss critical diversity issues such as racism, ageism, heterosexism and sexism.

  1. HEARTS for Families has several staff which need PCCG core training; however, this full week of training is scheduled the same week as the CADCA training in FL. Will there be another time this year that these courses will be offered?

    Thanks for getting back with me at your earliest convenience.

    Sincerely,
    Sue Laney

    • Hi, Sue!

      Right now, we plan to offer these courses again November 17-21. We will need to have at least 10 participants per course in order to offer them, so we can’t guarantee that they’ll be held, but we plan to offer them.

      The three one day courses are also being offered at GSAS at the end of August, as is the SAPST course (that counts for Fundamentals).

      Please let us know if you have any other questions.

      Thanks,

      GUIDE Staff
