Education

Our training courses have been developed for practitioners working with young people with AOD and related problems. Our sessions focus on deepening understanding, building skills, and developing capabilities.

Our training program is underpinned by over 20 years of practice wisdom from supporting young people experiencing problematic substance use, and a research program to understand the function and meaning of substance use, and the development and resilience of young people.

SUPERVISION FOR YOUTH WORKERS AND PROFESSIONALS WORKING WITH YOUNG PEOPLE

Young people accessing our services are unique and precious individuals, often coming from disadvantaged environments, holding complex stories of trauma, injustice, and distress.

Bringing in the family: Young people and drug use

Youth workers! Build your skills and confidence to effectively engage the family of young people you work with to create strengths and opportunities for them. 

Young people engaging in drug use and other problematic behaviours may be experiencing conflict with their families, however the family is often the most valuable resource.

The Youth Support and Advocacy Service (YSAS)  has launched a School Presentation Service!

Our presentations are developed from an evidence-base of ‘what works’ in school drug education programs.

School presentations by YSAS are supported by over 20 years of direct practice with young people who have substance-related problems.

Our goal:

To empower student choices through education about drugs and alcohol

The learning outcomes can be discussed to meet the needs of your teachers and students.
