Course Description

Approved by NASW, NH Chapter, for 6 Cat. 1 CE Credits, Auth. #3379

Discuss some of the latest research and emerging alternative perspectives for better understanding at-risk youth and the prevention and treatment of substance abuse and addictions. Several innovative new strategies and programs for working with at-risk youth that show significant promise for improving prevention and treatment outcomes will be examined. Explore how other nations around the world address the substance abuse/addictions issue and the implications they offer for program development and treatment in our country. Participants will be invited to broaden the lens and re-think many common assumptions guiding standard prevention, early intervention and treatment programs. We will then, step “outside the box” and explore transformative ideas and new intervention strategies based in building personal resilience, supportive/protective social environments, social-emotional competence, positive self-identities and personal well-being that “immunize” youth from substance abuse/addiction as well as provide “antidotes” to addiction.
