- City/Province: Ottawa, ON
- Event Type: Workshop
- Topics Covered:
- Intervention attempts with youth who are struggling with substance abuse are often met with resistance. While some youth choose not to use substances or their use stays as experimentation, for others, their use quenches a much larger unmet need and a pattern of use and abuse develops. Participants of this workshop will examine the needs underlying youth's choices to use substances. They will also consider issues that make working with youth different than working with adults and explore short term and longer term intervention strategies.
