Training Descriptions

Content and Format

The Institute’s curricula continually evolve to reflect developments in practice.

We offer regularly scheduled trainings at our main office in New York City, throughout the rest of New York State, and in San Francisco and Oakland.

Trainings are also available as Contract Trainings for your agency, and can be tailored to your specific needs. Longer training sessions usually culminate in a strategy session to develop steps that your community or agency might take toward your chosen goals. Trainers are also available to deliver conference presentations or workshops. Some trainings are available in Spanish upon request.

We offer half-day (3-4 hrs) and full-day (6-8 hrs) trainings. Topics can also be modified to fit inside your organization’s all-staff meetings (30 – 90 min).

The following is a list of training topics that have been offered at our training institutes. Each calendar cycle we rotate trainings based on interest and trainer availability.
