CPN-PREV/RAPS Consortium Training Programs

The CPN-PREV and RAPS consortium will help develop, adapt, expand and improve access to diverse training modules, toolkits, as well as capacity strengthening programs and activities adapted to the diverse practice sectors (e.g., health, social services, education, community).

The CPN-PREV/RAPS consortium will:

  • Support CPN-PREV’s members and partners with the adaptation, implementation and/or dissemination of the training modules and training-related activities across Canada;
  • Co-conduct field-testing, monitoring and evaluation in terms of practitioners’ knowledge, attitudes and practices of implemented training modules and activities;
  • Help CPN-PREV’s members develop Training of Trainers and other initiatives to strengthen the capacities of trainers and practitioners;
  • Promote knowledge mobilization around training among practitioners across Canada.

Theoretical Approach: Intercultural & Anti-Oppressive

What is our training approach?

Our training approach is unique in the field because:

  • It provides general information, as well as evidence-based data and up-to-date figures;
  • It informs on the risks of detection and profiling;
  • It offers intercultural training on the root causes of violent radicalization and their relation to social polarization, systemic racism and dynamics of discrimination and marginalization;
  • It fosters a culturally safe environment for the implementation of prevention and intervention programs;
  • It aims at empowering communities affected by hate crimes and incidents.

Learning Philosophy: Transformative & Experiential

What is our training philosophy?

Do you know how to work in the field of violent radicalization?

Do you feel confident in providing support to individuals at risk for violent radicalization? Violent radicalization can be an anxiety-inducing topic leading to feelings of disempowerment among practitioners.

In order to reduce these feelings,our training programs help to :

  • Deconstruct the myths and reduce the anxiety surrounding violent radicalization ;
  • Foster decentering and critical thinking ;
  • Provide participants with tools, strategies, and best practices ;
  • Promote an ecosystemic and multisectoral approach.

Model of Practice: Ecosystemic & Intersectoral

What is our training methodology?

Our training programs include:

  • Activities and exercises inspired by the principles of experiential and transformative learning;
  • Tools that help work on group dynamics, manage difficult emotions, and address sensitive topics;
  • Discussions on cases and trajectories, simulations, role-plays and participatory learning strategies.
