Skills for Health Promotion--New Introductory-Level Workshops from The Health Communication Unit

Facilitators: Nancy Dubois and Robb MacDonald

These introductory-level half-day workshops cover the basics of THCU's recommended step models.  In each workshop,

  • we begin with an overview of key concepts and terms,
  • then briefly address the "why" and "how" of each step,
  • then bring the most challenging steps to life through interactive exercises and small group discussions,
  • then discuss "on the job" challenges identified by participants, and to close,
  • identify quality sources of more information, tools and personalized consultation services.

We recommend these sessions for

  • Anyone new to health promotion seeking definitions, tools, resources and organized approaches to practice.
  • Front line staff that need to choose, plan, implement and evaluate programs and services.
  • Managers or team leaders who train or advise staff about theory and evidence-informed processes.

Participants may enroll in one, some, or all of the following half-day sessions:

  1. Planning Health Promotion Programs
  2. Evaluating Health Promotion Programs
  3. Influencing Policy Change and Development
  4. Developing Health Communication Activities

Thanks to a grant from the Ontario Ministry of Health Promotion, we are able to offer all THCU workshops and services for free to people working with Ontario-focused health promotion initiatives.
