Put Me in (to) Coach: Building Group Facilitators in Community Supervision


Monday, February 6, 2023
11:30 AM - 12:30 PM
Session Type: Workshop

Community supervision officers, particularly those who use cognitive-behavioral interventions, play much more of a life coach role than most individuals who may adopt this title. That said, there is often much these individuals must learn which goes beyond standard training related to EBPs. The purpose of this workshop will be to introduce the lessons learned in the course of creating and delivering an innovative open CBI group pioneered within the state of Nebraska. Topics discussed will include the methods for supporting community supervision coaches as far as implementation of groups, addressing training needs for facilitators, communication challenges and solutions, and obtaining data and feedback to build sustainability for facilitators and groups.
