Sessions & Workshops
KIP Education CICs unique sessions create awareness around addiction a school environment or youth setting among young people.
Binge drinking, substance experimentation and substance abuse are becoming a major concern. The chances of effectively reducing the danger facing adolescents today are increased, not by locking our kids away from their peers, but through education on the logical consequences that can accompany substance abuse in any form.
By equipping young people with knowledge and understanding we empower them as well as you, the parents/teachers/ professionals to deal with these challenges every day.
We use a harm reduction model which is a public health approach to encourage young people to say how drugs relate to them in society.
We use a number of creative ways to raise the issue which is both age and material appropriate.
Examples of the types of workshops we run for young people in a classroom of group/ youth work setting:
Drug & Alcohol addiction
Life Stories with recovering addicts
Alcohol Awareness and binge drinking
Novel Psychoactive Substances or “Legal Highs”
Tobacco and smoking
Drugs and Friendship: This program explores the relationship between substance use (primary focus on alcohol) and friendship, and developing skills to respond to peers who may be experiencing difficulty with substance use.
We aim to provide:
Informative drug and alcohol education
Explore attitudes and opinions
Clarify current drug and alcohol legislation
Provide harm reduction information
Signposts to local drug and alcohol treatment services
KIP Education CIC sessions are usually between 1 hour and 2 hours long and again this depends on the need of the client.
Drug Education can be a tricky subject to teach as students can find it awkward to discuss drug knowledge and experiences.
