Good afternoon prevention partners.

Those of us who have worked in prevention awhile can probably foresee some of the challenges coming our way on the other side of this Covid-19 crisis. During the peak of this crisis, when some of us may have a little more time than normal, it might be helpful to view that time as an opportunity to prepare for that other side.

One challenge coming is helping our youth and families deal with the impact of various traumas they are currently experiencing. Last year, I completed the online Brain Story Certification through the Alberta Family Wellness Initiative. I can’t overstate how good this resource is – especially given it is free.

If you have some time, I strongly encourage you to enroll and take this course. In my opinion, much of what is taught in this course is at the heart of our prevention work. It will be a great tool going forward to make us more competent than ever in those efforts.
