Workshop Description
Many children and teens are using substances adults have never heard of. Without knowledge, adults are not able to guide children and teens in the direction of health. This workshop will start with a review of being Culturally Responsive in practice. The presenter will delve into the current and correct terms to use, struggles children and teens face, and theories, strategies, and resources that can help social workers in their work with children and teens engaging in substance use. This program will address a variety of questions, including: How can social workers help foster programming that is not punitive?; Why do students engage in substance use, what are warning signs, and what are the risks?; How do social workers engage with parents of youth who use substances?
