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.

We’re inviting foster carers, kinship carers and related case managers to a Free Half-Day Forum. Participants will learn about building resources for young people to reduce the risk of problematic substance use, why young people use drugs, how they are using them and how to reduce harms while engaging in constructive conversations about drug use.
