Working with Cannabis Dependence & Symptoms in Young People

Benefits of Attending

It’s also the first illegal substance that young people are likely to experiment with. This course provides comprehensive information on cannabis and young people’s misuse. It will also increase your confidence and knowledge in how to support young people to make good decisions about these types of behaviours, including problematic cannabis dependence.
