One-Day Workshop on Participatory Action Research (PAR)
Thursday, November 7, 2013
Would you like to tap the ideas and insights of your participants to better understand the outcomes and the impact of your work in domestic violence prevention? Would you like to more deeply engage with your community to build strategies for change? Participatory Action Research offers powerful methods to measure outcomes and communicate results to both the community and to funders.
Participatory Action Research (PAR) is a powerful tool for building knowledge and strategies for change. However, PAR can seem confusing and difficult to implement given the normal demands of running our organizations and programs. Building upon the fundamental values, principles, and methods of community-driven participatory evaluation, Transforming Communities: Technical Assistance and Training Resource Center (TC-TAT) and Alisa Del Tufo from Threshold Collaborative are offering a one day workshop for domestic violence practitioners in California. It will offer a simple way to break down and understand the elements of PAR and show step-by-step, how these strategies are designed and implemented.
This one-day workshop will provide participants with:
- An overview of PAR;
- An understanding of how PAR can support survivor empowerment, community engagement and organizational capacity;
- Specific strategies for implementing a PAR approach.
When & Where
Space is limited to 20 participants on a first come first served basis. Priority will be given to domestic violence agencies who are currently receiving OES/CalEMA funding.
When & Where
The training will be held at the Center for Domestic Peace in San Rafael, CA. The training will take place on Thursday, November 7, 2013 from 9:00am – 5:00pm. Participation is important for the entire training. Please arrange your travels accordingly.
$35 per person, includes training materials, continental breakfast, coffee/tea, and afternoon snack.
