About this event

This workshop will aim to increase understanding of why people use alcohol or drugs, the stages of use, forming habits and how we respond and cope with stresses and pressures. The impact of misuse on people’s physical, mental and emotional health as well as the impact on the whole family will be presented. It will explore attitudes and fears around this complex area and provide some practical tools to help engage and communicate with someone who you think may be using substances or experiencing behavioural addictions. Behaviours such as internet use, phone use and food will also be discussed. The workshop will finish with a self-care exercise.

This workshop is open to anyone in contact with young people and wants to increase their understanding of this current issue for many young people whether you’re a professional, volunteer, teacher, student, community member or parent. All with interest – welcome.

Organiser Mags Dillon

Organiser of Engaging young people on the issue of alcohol, drugs & addictive behavior

This workshop will explore the importance of our own needs and self-care and how we respond and cope with stresses and pressures. Self-care is essential for everyone, but it is often overlooked when life gets busy or challenges arise. This workshop will support people to focus on their own goals, needs and actions to create a more fulfilling life.

This workshop is suitable for anyone with an interest in or would like to learn more about self-care, coping and addictive behavior. This is open to adults over 18 years, a parent, family member, community member, professional, volunteer or student. All welcome

The workshop will also examine how people develop dependency on external things such as alcohol and drugs to cope and relax. It will explore pathways in prevention and recovery from addictive behavior's as well as how to support someone who experiences these situations.
