Abstract

In this chapter, we describe the key issues related to selecting and training individuals to implement the RIPP program. As with all school—based health—promotion and social competence programs, adequate selection, preparation, and support of staff is essential. This chapter begins by defining the role of the prevention facilitator. Then, it describes some of the criteria for identifying individuals suited for this position. Finally, we provide an overview of the amount of time and type of activities required for training RIPP facilitators.
