Engaging the Wisdom of Community: Community Engagement Fundamentals Trainings



During this dynamic 2-hour session, participants will have an opportunity to explore the fundamental models, terms, and theories used in the field of community engagement, and to unpack what it means to have more “authenticity” in engagement efforts. We will also explore the 10 Liberating Practices of Facilitating Authentic Community Engagement and hear Stories from the Field to exemplify these practices in action. This session will be primarily didactic with examples from real life community engagement activities. Participants will receive a workbook of guided reflection worksheets to explore how the concepts covered are reflected in their work with and in community.

This training is perfect for community health workers, public health professionals, students, educators, and anyone with an interest in strengthening your authentic connection and work with your community.

You must join the Live Learning Sessions by video (an external webcam or built-in camera in your laptop, tablet, or smartphone).  Our staff can help you get set up if this is new for you.
