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 training will provide the participants with the opportunity to engage in an open exploration of the theories, evidence, frameworks and practice wisdom that informs contemporary youth AOD practice as well as participating in group discussions and interactive contextualising activities.

This workshop will look at how understandings of trauma, attachment and adverse early childhood experiences inform our work with young people who use AOD.  It will also explore ways in which we can work to support safety, control and hope and seek to counter the negative impacts of these experiences.

Learning outcomes:

  • Introduction to Attachment
  • Understanding Trauma
  • Impacts of Trauma on the Young Person
  • Understanding the links between trauma and AOD use
