In response to lessons learned from traditional ‘drive-by’ research practices, more and more studies are adopting a community-based participatory research (CBPR) approach. CBPR actively engages the community in the design and implementation of projects that, as a result, are more responsive to the community’s needs. CBPR builds on the community’s strengths and resources, facilitates collaborative partnerships, balances research and action, and promotes co-learning.
The Rocky Mountain Prevention Research Center offers public health and community health promotion professionals customizable training opportunities in CBPR.
- CBPR principles
- Empowerment theory
- Partnership roles

CBPR training opportunities that can be customized to your schedule, needs, budget, and level of expertise. Rocky Mountain Prevention Research Center workshops are conducted by professional research scientists experienced in CBPR health promotion program planning and evaluation.
