WHAT MAKES OUR SKILLS TRAINING PROGRAMS DIFFERENT

Training Designed to Meet Your Individual Needs

Engage with® Skills Trainings are highly interactive, comprehensive skills-based trainings. Our programs help participants develop the skills and understanding necessary to engage in healthy relationships. The programs use an innovative gamification approach in a live, virtual environment and cover topics such as mental and behavioral health conditions, substance use and medication misuse, neurocognitive disorders, traumatic brain injury (TBI), de-escalation, and suicide risk identification.

Our methods help participants better understand with whom they interact. The trainings emphasize a person-centered approach, dispel myths, increase awareness, and promote meaningful engagement.

4-Hours of Core Skills with up to 10 additional Hours of 'mix & match' Supplemental Trainings Available

All participants start with the 4-hour Core Skills Training and can then add any combination of the five available 2-hour Supplements.

Following completion of the Core Skills training, there are five 2-hour supplements available which can be “mixed and matched” to meet state/federal requirements or individual agency needs.

Five Levels of our Skills Training Program

Skills Pyramid

Engage with’s unique approach to skills training can be visualized in our Skills Pyramid. We teach skills that help participants learn from their observations, communicate purposefully, and offer thoughtful responses that consider both the situation and the individual.

In addition, what differentiates Engage with® Skills Training from other trainings is that preservation of ego is at the core of the Engage with philosophy, which alerts participants to inadvertent insults, disrespect, disregard and/or a person’s need to protect their image of themselves. This is at the heart of most conflicts and is a significant driver of resistance to care. Our final step is reflection, which is critical if we are to be effective in our role and be able to maintain it over time.
