Working With Cannabis Dependance in Young People TRaining.png

Benefits of Attending 

How do you convince a young person to cut down on his cannabis use or discuss his use/misuse? Cannabis is the most commonly used illicit drug in Britain. 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.

Topics Covered

Educating young people about the consequences of cannabis use; harm reduction interventions with cannabis users; interventions for young people who have problems associated with cannabis.

By the end of the training participants will be able to:

  • Increase their knowledge on the effects, risks and harms associated with using cannabis

  • Consider effective interventions for young cannabis users

  • Increase knowledge and awareness of the issues relating to cannabis use

  • Understand the possible affects on health

  • Increase confidence and competence when working with young cannabis users, using tried and tested techniques

  • Gain a greater awareness of local and national resources of help, support, and information to access within school and where and when to refer on to.
