Are you supporting young people? Would you like more knowledge on the drugs that are currently a problem in our society, so that you can give more informed and confident advice and support? Then this session is for you and your team. The drug using landscape has changed over the last twenty years. There has been a serious shift from stimulant drug use to depressant drug use. This session looks at the changes and explores why they have come about, and most importantly, what we can do to help. We start at the beginning explaining the process of addiction and withdrawal, the relevance of the dopamine reward system and the cross over with teenage brain development. A range of specific substances are discussed including cannabis, ketamine, vaping, energy drinks, ecstasy and cocaine. This three-hour online training session is delivered by FACE Lead Facilitator, Jane Keyworth. Jane will explain the theory and give plenty of opportunity to practice and discuss the skills included. All attendees receive an accredited CPD certificate that can be added to their CPD portfolio.
