It can be a very difficult and daunting time for families and carers when they discover a young person is using substances. It comes with many unexpected ups-and-downs that create a strain on all relationships.
Care Planning for Resilience applies evidence from developmental science and resilience research, and has the purpose of creating a motivating plan which addresses the issues that matter to the young person.
The OoHC Toolbox contains information and guidance on responding to common issues faced by the young people in OoHC, including substance use, self-injury, sexualised behaviours and mental health concerns.
The Youth AOD Learning Hub has been developed. It provides practitioners with a structured, guided course through the skills and knowledge necessary to be effective in Youth AOD practice. Clinical supervisors will also be able to utilise the Hub through the Reflective Practice Guides for Supervisors provided with each Course.
