Event description

Description

Part One of a two part-event sees the launch of both the 3rd Edition of Reduce the Use and the publication of participator research into the effectiveness of Reduce the Use as a tool for stabilisation and recovery. You can book your ticket for this event here.

This will be followed by a training event in the afternoon - guiding people through the new Reduce the Use (RTU) manual. Places on the RTU training session are limited to 40. For those who want to partake in the training event please book on Eventbrite Reduce the Use (3rd Edition) Training

Reduce the Use is an amazingly simple tool for working with groups of people who want to begin or continue their journey of addressing their drug use. Empowering group members to know themselves and their triggers for drug use is an important step in changing our relationship with substances and behaviours that are no longer helpful. Through a 12 module manual, RTU takes participants on a gentle journey of self-discovery so that they can arrive at a place of deciding what they want to do next, with help and support to successfully implement those decisions.

The 3rd Edition of RTU follows the 2015 publication by SAOL of RTU Individual Worksheets. We have restructured the modules, introducing learning outcomes for each and providing more exercises to use with groups so that the concepts of triggers, automatic thinking, beliefs and drug diaries are approached with more detail, ensuring that participants have a full grasp of all concepts used.

The manual will be available for free download from www.saolproject.ie from March 7th 2018

SAOL Project has a growing history of assisting participants in developing research skills and then supporting them as they compile a research project on a topic of interest for our local area. Following a short course studying research methodology and questionnaire design, the group interviewed more than 60 people (mainly from SAOL but also from other Projects around Dublin) asking them variious questions related to the effectiveness for them of RTU groups. They will present their findings at this event while also receiving certificates for their research studies.

Their report will also be available for download from www.saolproject.ie from March 7th 2018

Both of these publications are launched today because SAOL is marking International Women's Day 2018. We continue to remind everyone that addiction is a different experience for women than it is for men; and we hope that equity and equality for women gets nearer to becoming a reality for all women this coming year.
