COMMUNITY INTERVENTION

Community-based interventions that are custom fit and co-created with trusted leaders, educators, health workers, first responders or even religious leaders within their cultural context. We utilize existing infrastructures and train trusted paraprofessionals in the PRISE curriculum to encourage ownership and sustainability. We strive to monitor and verify to ensure safety of recipients and to preserve integrity of our interventions.

On occasion, when appropriate, we can also provide emergency interventions within those communities.*

PRISE TRAINING

Comprises two full days of trauma-informed training, often broken into four segments for ease of access and learning and to accommodate different times zones as well as competing commitments. A third day is devoted to training those who show promise and desire to be the next generation of trainers. The training is adapted to the unique needs of each culture and context.

 

To date, almost all the training has been delivered remotely due to the pandemic. In future years, as conditions allow, we will deliver a hybrid format of virtual and in-person training.

DATA & RESEARCH

We are deeply committed to ongoing, rigorous evaluation of our trainings and interventions for the purposes of quality control, continuous improvement and to prevent dilution of the method.

We understand that opportunities for future funding are directly correlated with demonstrated efficacy and quality research that is evidence-based.

MENTORSHIP

PRISE paraprofessionals are offered and encouraged to have ongoing mentorship to consolidate learning and to facilitate competence and personal growth. At all stages of our work, we strive to facilitate 360 degree feedback and accountability from all parties involved.
