DIMENSIONS: Tobacco Free Program

The DIMENSIONS: Tobacco Free Program is an evidence-based tobacco cessation program designed to teach providers and peers the necessary information and skills to promote successful tobacco cessation within their organizations. Trainees learn motivational engagement strategies, community referrals, educational activities, individual and group treatments, and policy change strategies. The program teaches trainees the skills and resources to promote positive behavior change in individuals interested in living tobacco-free.

DIMENSIONS: Tobacco Free Advanced Techniques Training

This one and a half day training covers tobacco fundamentals, tobacco addiction, tobacco cessation strategies, and a motivational intervention for tobacco cessation. Trainees will also be trained to facilitate the DIMENSIONS Tobacco Free Group curriculum—a 6-week tobacco cessation group. 

The Advanced Techniques training is a train-the-trainer model, meaning participants will leave the training with the materials and knowledge to train others at their organization.

DIMENSIONS: Tobacco Free Fundamentals Training

The Fundamentals training is a half to one-day training intended for healthcare providers with previous knowledge of tobacco addiction and treatment. The training focuses on understanding tobacco addiction, information on the latest tobacco cessation strategies, and motivational intervention for tobacco cessation. Additionally, we adapt the fundamentals training to match the need of the trainees. We can add specialized modules, including topics such as electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS) and implementation of tobacco-free policies.

Priority Populations

The DIMENSIONS: Tobacco Free trainings can be tailored towards working priority populations who face health disparities or have specialized healthcare needs, including persons with behavioral health conditions, persons with criminal justice involvement, low-income populations, pregnant/postpartum women, and youth, among others. This program features an in-depth examination of issues facing these priority populations as well as strategies to address the unique challenges in working with these populations.
