Increase Your Funding Through Program Evaluation

ID: 7170

How do you know if your work is effective? How would a prospective funder know whether your program is a good investment? The funder will never know unless you evaluate the effectiveness of the program. This workshop will explain how to complete simple and complex evaluations, how to select the outcomes you should measure and how to locate evidence based measures and intervention programs. Competition for funding is fierce. Use program evaluation to stand out from all other programs applying for grants. This workshop builds on Program Evaluation -An Opportunity, Not a Burden so it is the second in a two day series on program evaluation. It is highly recommended that those who attended Program Evaluation -An Opportunity, Not a Burden this season, or in the past, attend this complementary workshop. However, participants who do not attend the first Program Evaluation course are still encouraged to attend this one.

ID: 7158

You value the work that you and your staff do. You provide services that help people in need and you do so in a conscientious manner. It is exciting work and you want people to know about it - not just funders and oversight agencies that "evaluate" you - but colleagues and people who might come to you for service. How can you connect with them in a way that will tell the story of what you do and do so in a convincing manner?

Psychotherapy and Counseling with Older Adults

ID: 1070

This workshop will dispel the all-too-common assumption that psychotherapy and counseling are not effective treatment modalities with senior adults. Contrary to the belief that seniors are "inflexible and stuck in their ways" as well as having diminished cognitive and reflective capacity, studies indicate that they can benefit as much from these modalities as younger persons, albeit with some different approaches, techniques and goals. In this workshop we will consider the special strengths and challenges of senior adults, the place of their particular life cycle issues and how to understand and use transference, resistance, support and interpretation in working with this population. Many case examples and exercises will be offered.
