recommended format is to have your counselors, RAs,
Greek Life Office, Campus Health, Wellness, and student
representatives, etc. experience a Buzz presentation
and/or train-the-trainers workshop. Consultation on
presentation content, style and delivery will be covered.
workshops are frequently rated the best and certainly
the most fun training workshop that most people have
attended. They are 3 hours in length and will extensively
cover all the Buzz activities and how to facilitate
them as well as learning how to alter them for specific
groups and group size. Together we will identify the
most important alcohol education messages and topics
that your school wants to make sure it addresses to
its student population. Perhaps most importantly, I
also cover and model the dynamics of how to facilitate
student learning by teaching concepts of experiential
learning and utilizing the power of play, connection
and multiple intelligence learning modalities. This
is the part of the program that makes it more of a joy
to deliver alcohol education messaging. Students will
then experience such messaging in a relevant and meaningful
manner that has the great potential for affecting positive
cognitive, affective, and behavioral change.
I have facilitated
Buzz training workshops with just student and student
stake-holders such as health advocates, RAs and peer
educators or with professional Wellness, counseling,
DOS, residence life and other student-servicing staff.
However, my favorite trainings are the ones where there
is a combination of both student and professional staff.
I find it validating (as do the participants) when the
professional staff can see actual students really resonating
with how The Buzz is facilitated. I like to limit the
number of attendees to no more than 40 so we can have
a sense of connectedness and ability for dialogue and
sharing. That number is flexible if needed.
school districts, utilizing The Buzz as college preparation
alcohol education, it is recommended to bring in your
counselors, identified teachers, nurses and other student
services personnel for a train the trainer workshop
I am always
available for free phone consults before and after your
Buzz training workshop and am highly motivated that
The Buzz succeeds well at your school like it has here
at the UA.
So give me
a call and let's discuss the possibilities bringing
The Buzz to your school.
