What’s the Deal on… Quitting?

Additional Info

Cannabis is still the most popular illegal drug in the UK, but it has gained a reputation as an addictive drug that users find difficult to control or stop when they want to. But how true is this? Most people that use cannabis do so occasionally, encounter few serious problems, can quit when they want to, or simply grow out of it.
 
However, some people do develop compulsive use and find it difficult to control or quit altogether. As with any behaviour that is repeated on a regular basis, strong associations can build up that may become a habit that seems difficult to break.
 
This course shows you how to do just that.
 
This half-day workshop is designed for those who work with anyone who uses cannabis, to help them make changes in their behaviour, and manage the problems they may face in the process. You will learn about: the latest information on cannabis (including synthetic cannabinoids); ways to help identify problems around compulsive use; and practical steps you can use to help others reduce or quit altogether.

Learning Objectives:

  • To review the nature and extent of cannabis use today, including synthetic cannabinoids
  • To understand the problems associated with compulsive use
  • To explore strategies that will help someone who wants to cut down or quit
  • To be able to define and measure successful outcomes
