Engaging leaders and other influencers in a community has always been critical for organizing efforts to support prevention, treatment and recovery. Effective community organizing skills are more important than ever in a social service environment where change is rapid and stigma prevails. This course will review the principles of basic community organizing. Strategies for advocates to proactively engage all those decision makers involved in behavioral healthcare and primary care will be discussed. The many rich opportunities for prevention, treatment and recovery organizations to collaborate with each other to further many mutual goals in their community will also be addressed. In addition to specific organizing strategies, this course will provide opportunity for discussion, role play and interaction across disciplines.
