Our problem-based learning trainings go beyond one-pagers and textbooks, bringing participants into real-world situations where they can apply their knowledge, and explore their assumptions in a safe learning environment. Under the guidance of a certified facilitator, your workforce or students will observe, discuss, and make decisions that impact the rest of the simulation. All the while, defining problems, uncovering information, and working together to identify and evaluate possible solutions.
Participants who attend a Project FORECAST simulation can expect increased engagement in the learning process, better outcomes at work, higher staff retention, and improved Trauma-Informed Experiential Reasoning Skills (TIERS). Plus, the innumerable benefits of better helping children impacted by trauma and abuse.
Class sizes vary by location and funding source, but we’re committed to making FORECAST as financially accessible as possible. Simulations can be conducted in-person or remotely and range from 4-6 hours, or can be broken up over multiple sessions to meet the needs of participants.
Project FORECAST aims to develop training partnerships between universities with Child Advocacy Studies (CAST) programs and their local workforces. Together, we can increase retention of current professionals, better facilitate transitions into the workforce, and improve the competence of those entering a child-serving sector.
Each simulation is tailored to a unique setting and set of problems, so participants can explore the subjects most related to their field of work.
