Noffs Online Course - Drugs Alcohol and Young People


Welcome to the online course Drugs Alcohol and Young people. This course has been designed to equip you with the knowledge and basic skills to work with young people who use Drugs an Alcohol. We will walk through both a theoretical and hands on approach to this often challenging relationship with young people. The course has 12 episodes of about 10 - 15 minutes each, and is best viewed in chronological order, though you can jump ahead or rewatch previous episodes. Each episode has a downloadable PDF that provides the outline for the episode with some helpful diagrams and models.
