Dangerous Playgrounds 3.0, Substance Abuse Fundamentals

Trainer: Mike McGuire

Description:  Dangerous Playgrounds 3.0 will provide an interactive learning approach designed to increase participant awareness about current trends related to substances of abuse - both legal as well as illicit. Participants in this training can expect to learn what substances of abuse are, what they look like, how they are used, terminology, and various associated paraphernalia. In addition, participants will learn the behavioral indicators (physical, psychological, emotional) of specific substances of abuse. The class will likewise connect behavioral indicators, environmental concerns, and physical symptoms of use to their impact on safety, risk, and protective factors in child welfare. This class will provide a broad overview of substances of abuse with an emphasis on current trends and those most likely to be encountered by those working with youth and families.Participants will leave this training better equipped to understand and navigate the often complex world of substances of abuse encountered in your work.
