November 2–3, 2017
Mandel Community Studies Center (room 115); each day will begin at 8:30am and end at 4:30pm.
6 PD hours available for the full 2 day session
A two-day training introducing the core principles and practices of Asset-Based Community Development (ABCD) for use in local communities and organizations. Presentations and exercises will occur in light of current issues about racial equity and social justice and will enable participants to think deeper about responses to these challenges. ABCD builds community from the inside out as residents become producers rather than needy people seeking services. Learn the power of asset mapping, a fundamental tool that discovers the gifts of individuals, the power of networks and associations, and local organizations that are then leveraged to create change.
Who Should Attend?
People who seek a working understanding of ABCD as a strength-based approach to change. Though not a requirement, experience shows that the effectiveness of the training is greater when more than one person from the same organization attend together.
This workshop will be led by experienced ABCD practitioners Mark Chupp, PhD, ABCD Institute Faculty Member, and Indigo Bishop, MSSA, ABCD Institute Fellow.
Registration Fee: $300 for the 2-day training event. Please contact Heather.Lenz@case.edu to inquire about group discounts for parties of 4 or more.
