GOALS & OBJECTIVES of the Training of Trainers Workshop:
To train people to work effectively for Safe, Disciplined and Drug-Free Schools, and in other settings such as treatment, probation, prisons, community, organizations. You will learn to:

    Implement a successful research-based, process oriented life skills program for schools and other settings that uses cognitive, affective, visual, auditory and kinesthetic modalities to maximize learning and implementation of empowering behaviors rooted in experience.

   Identify the communications that lead to breakdowns and conflicts, and transform them into powerful resources for effective communications, positive relationships, prevention and sustained recovery.

    Empower students, parents, community and other clients you work with to co-create their training, making it appropriate for any group regardless of age, gender and culture.

RESULTS: SIS research in schools, treatment, probation, and detention settings shows significant or highly significant reductions in alcohol/drug related school suspensions, juvenile criminal offenses, alienation/normlessness, disempowering communications/behaviors and leaving treatment against medical advice, and significant or highly significant increases in empowering communications/behaviors, conflict management, self-esteem, willingness to implement constructive decisions in difficult situations, quality of family and group life.

MATERIALS: Participants will receive the SAY IT STRAIGHT Trainer Manual and samples of SIS Workbooks for students and adults. Three videotapes, SIS in the Classroom, SIS Student Support Groups and SIS Parent-Community Series will be available for purchase at the Workshop.

The Say It Straight Foundation is dedicated to create sustainable prevention communities by training Master Trainers to train additional Say It Straight Trainers in your community.

SIS training is a well thought out program for improving the psychological health of people of all ages.
