Drugs And Sex: Making The Connections

Trainer: Julian Cohen
Drug use can have a big impact on people’s sexual experiences – for better or for worse – yet this is something that many people find difficult to talk about. This course will examine the relationship between the use of different drugs and sex, and explore effective and sensitive ways of talking to drug using clients about sex and keeping themselves safe.

Training Tips For Trainers

Trainer: Julian Cohen
This is a practical course for anyone who is leading drug training courses for professionals, young people, parents or community groups and will appeal to both the novice and experienced trainer.

An Introduction To Harm Reduction

Trainer: Nigel Brunsdon
This course was designed for anyone working within non-substance misuse services, eg nurses, police, social services staff and other care organisations. However it also works as a great primer for both new and experienced drugs workers. The main focus is on giving delegates the practical skills required to work within a harm reduction methodology.

Safer Injecting

Trainer: Nigel Brunsdon
This one day course has been developed to give a good understanding of safer injecting harm reduction advice. It will inform delegates of best practice and recognised harm reduction messages to be used when working with injecting drug users, along with an underpinning knowledge of currently injected substances and their associated risk factors.

Young People And Pornography

Trainer: Julian Cohen
More young people, especially but not only young men, are regularly viewing (hard core) pornography, particularly on the internet and via mobile phones. This is potentially having a negative impact on their sexual identity, expectations, attitudes and behaviours.

Introduction To Chemsex

Trainer: GMHC
This accessible training day is designed for staff and workers from drugs and sexual health services, commissioning, CCGs, GPs, LGBT organisations and local government, and works more effectively if participants from these organisations are present. Content is comprised of presentations, short films, discussion and group work exercises, and Q&A. At the end of the day, participants are given a detailed handout (with hyper-links and QR codes) including research, policy and strategy documents, and further reading referred to throughout the day.
