This "Parent Training Program Showcase Conference Plus Instructor Training Workshop" approach
was utilized and researched by CICC in the 1970's under a five-year grant from the National
Institute of Mental Health. Its success in educating and preparing professionals was
acknowledged by the approach being termed "a national training model."
Soon after this model was shown to be so effective, other federal government agencies, like
the U.S. Office of Substance Abuse Prevention (now the Center for Substance Abuse Prevention)
and several state agencies, adopted this CICC-developed training model. Many other state and
local organizations have subsequently adopted this CICC model, and have often conducted these
conferences and workshops in collaboration with CICC.
If your agency, department, school district or community consortium would be interested in
bringing a specially-tailored Showcase Conference to your area, contact CICC's Training
Department to explore how CICC can work with you in designing and delivering such a conference.
