Event Description
Building A Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR) Partnership Among Counselors: Addressing Youth Addiction Community-based participatory research (CBPR) has emerged in recent years as the most promising researcher-community approach to building partnerships. Community-based participatory research (CBPR), with its emphasis on connecting with the community as equal partners throughout the research process, creates an opportunity for counseling researchers to partner with practitioners both at the community and K-12 school level. The presenter believes that CBPR could serve as an additional tool in developing relationships between researchers and practitioners in the community. Through these relationships, researchers and communities can expect enhanced communication, reducing the gap between research and practice relating to addiction. The combined efforts between researchers and practitioners should work to improve treatment for clients we serve. The presenter will provide (CBPR) competencies (knowledge, skills, attitude, and activities) for a training guide geared toward building researcher-community partnerships. 1. Participants will learn about the importance of building researcher-community partnerships in addressing Youth addiction in their respective communities. 2. Participants will become aware of CBPR as an emerging approach to building researcher-community partnerships. 3. Participants will be provided with tools to assist in building intra- and inter-professional collaborations to enhance client/community well-being.
