Title: Zertifikatslehrgang "Sucht- und Gewaltprävention" Certificate training course on addiction prevention and violence prevention

The target group are key persons from relevant areas with different levels of knowledge. By training of these key persons, addiction prevention and violence prevention should be anchored as multidimensional common task in the society. The training courses are building on each other and are organized as modules, so they can be attended besides work. The first and shortest training course (Zertifikatslehrgang) was implemented and evaluated as pilot project from 09/2008 to 02/2010. In the year 2008 the first Zertifikatslehrgang was implemented as pilot project. 20 participants were selected. An evaluation of the pilot project as longitudinal section study with interactive questionnaires as well as participating surveillance by external students was carried out.

To be able to consider this in future trainings, the concept was adapted and some referees changed. In March 2011 27 persons will start with the Hochschul- resp. Masterlehrgang, of these 7 graduated from the pilot project (Zertifikatslehrgang). >>
