Skills for Health Promotion Fall 2010: THCU's Introductory-Level Series of Webinars

Expand your health promotion toolkit for any health promotion issue: these introductory-level webinars cover the basics of THCU's recommended step models.

In each of our 75 minute lecture-style webinars,

  • we begin with an overview of key concepts and terms,
  • then briefly address the ‘why’ and ‘how’ of each step in the relevant model,
  • then bring the most challenging steps to life with examples,
  • and to close, identify quality sources of more information, tools and describe THCU's customized consultation services.

In each of our 90 minute interactive application webinars,

  • we begin with a brief review of the relevant step-model,
  • 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,
  • orient participants to opportunities for further discussion on THCU's blog, and further assistance through our consultation services.

(*Participants must be able to access Microsoft LiveMeeting software in advance of the webinar.)

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 health promotion programs and services.
  • managers or team leaders who train or advise staff or volunteers about theory and evidence-informed processes.

Note: Due to funding restrictions, registration priority will be given to health promoters currently working with Ontario-focused organizations. All others will be placed on a waiting list and notified if space becomes available.
