PA Based Training
In 2014, PCCD and the EPISCenter are collaborating with IYS providers to begin offering a more coordinated series of PA based Incredible Years trainings. There are two main goals for this collaboration:
1. Decrease Training Costs: By ensuring that each training is fully utilized and avoiding travel to Seattle PCCD will be able to decrease the overall costs to providers for Incredible Years training. Lower costs mean that our state prevention dollars are stretched to serve more families and youth.
2. Enhance the Pennsylvania Incredible Years Learning Community: By inviting providers across the state to come together for training we increase the opportunity for networking between providers. Facilitators can share lessons learned and build relationships that will allow them to access each other throughout their implementation of the model.
Part of high quality implementation is assessing program impact and fidelity to the model. Below are tools and resources provided by the EPISCenter to assist in collecting, analyzing, and communicating this data.
