Training of Trainers (TOT) is a rigorous training program leading to becoming a Certified Dibble Trainer in Love Notes, our EBP program.

To learn more about a TOT, contact us at 800-695-7975 or RelationshipSkills@DibbleInstitute.org.

The goal of the TOT is for trainees to learn the three day Dibble Training Model in order to successfully conduct the Love Notes EBP TOE with their organization’s facilitators. Those facilitators will then effectively and with fidelity implement Love Notes with at-risk youth in multiple settings.

Curriculum Booster Sessions allow your staff to dive deeper into the curriculum content after an initial training. Based on their teaching experiences, facilitators will practice answering puzzling questions, address facilitation challenges, and practice skills to become even more effective.

To schedule a Booster Session, complete our Training Inquiry form or contact us at 800-695-7975 or RelationshipSkills@DibbleInstitute.org.

Now that your staff has facilitated a Dibble program, they may have additional questions about content, delivery, or implementation. Scheduling a curriculum Booster Session will deepen their understanding and improve their approach. Booster Sessions are customized for your organization’s needs because we want to meet your facilitators where they are and prepare them to provide even better service to youth.
