This ‘drugs awareness course with a difference’ focuses on the people who use drugs and not just the substances themselves. It will consider why people use drugs in the ways they do, the consequences of drug use, the role of set and setting and ways of supporting people who experience drug problems.

This course will explore a wide range of participatory methods and demonstrate their practical use. It will include use of quizzes, photographs, card games, warm up exercises and use of role play without fear or tears. A must for staff who wish to increase their confidence and skills to work with clients.
The utilisation of syringe exchange services by anabolic steroid (AS) injectors has increased over the last fifteen years to such an extent that in some areas new AS injecting clients now outnumber all other injectors combined. This course will explore the reasons for this phenomenon, the implications for service delivery and how practitioners may face the challenge of providing harm reduction interventions to this service user group.
This seminar will examine the broad scale that sexual violence encompasses. From rape to CSE, grooming to FGM and honour based violence. Despite stereotypes, it is not just confined to female victims or male perpetrators, or carried out solely by strangers on the street at night.
