Community Readiness Model Webinar
The Native American Center for Excellence, an initiative of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), has posted a 2-hour skills-building webinar on the Community Readiness Model (CRM). The webinar was presented on July 12, 2011, by Dr. Pamela Jumper Thurman and Dr. Barbara Plested, members of the team that developed the CRM nearly 20 years ago at Colorado State University.
The CRM was designed to mobilize communities at the appropriate readiness stage and build cooperation and coordination among systems and individuals. Community Readiness is a step-by-step approach to creating positive and healthy community change that uses resources already available within communities and supports development of culturally appropriate intervention strategies.
