Youth-focused AOD Practice Program

This training program aims to increase the capacity of practitioners to effectively support and respond to the needs of young people who are using substances while also promoting the integration of contemporary evidence-informed youth AOD perspective into care planning and coordination.

This training program contains 4x course:

  • Youth AOD 1 – Half-day Attachment and Trauma in Youth AOD work
  • Youth AOD 2 – Half-day Developmentally Conducive Practice
  • Youth AOD 3 – Half-day Young people & AOD
  • Youth AOD 4 – Half-day Resilience Care Planning

It is highly recommended that the participants attend the 4 sessions.

This workshop will equip workers with a foundational understanding of adolescent development and the function, meaning and purpose of risk-taking and other challenging behaviours including AOD use.  It will explore relationship-based approaches to working with young people and look at how we can move from issues based responses to a developmentally conducive practice approach.

Learning outcomes:

  • Adolescent Development theories
  • Risk in Adolescence.
  • Developmental needs and adolescent substance use
  • Relationship-based practice
  • Developmentally conducive ways of working
