This training course combines the work of Dr. Peter Sandman with the IAP2 core concepts for meaningful and effective public participation. In these challenging times of environmental, health, cultural, economic and social changes this course will give participants strategies and behaviors to enhance quality public participation outcomes, even when communities are emotional or outraged.
Who should take this course?
This advanced course is recommended for seasoned Community Involvement Coordinators (CICs) and public involvement staff who have practical experience in community involvement and prior training in dealing with hostile situations. Recommended prerequisites include "Dealing with Hostile Meetings and Difficult Situations" or the IAP2 certificate course training.
What are the course learning objectives?
Participants who complete this course will gain skills to:
• Think about and analyze outrage in a new way, and understand the causes of outrage
• Approach the planning/implementation of public participation projects with outrage
• Assess, address and manage outrage using six practical strategies
• Apply the principles, strategies and approaches to prepare for upcoming challenges
• Link meaningful practices for public participation with outrage management
What are the logistics?
This 2-day course is not a lecture style learning opportunity - it is applied and discursive - using the material participants bring from their own practice as well as the prepared content that the trainer will deliver. This highly interactive course includes case studies, video clips of Dr. Sandman, public participation tools and techniques, times for personal reflection, group discussion and application of strategies. Recommended course size: 25-30.
