Drug Class: Everything you wanted to know about marijuana but were too afraid to ask

Participants will gain an understanding of a delivery model to better inform and educate teens, parents, and professionals about the impact of substance use, misuse, and abuse on adolescent brain development and on their behavior and attitudes. Additionally, they will receive an understanding of how to incorporate this model into a school environment. The relationship a teen has with substance use is primarily an emotional relationship so it is important to develop prevention models that have a strong emotional core and incorporate relationship building and esteem development into the prevention model. Participants will gain an understanding of how to use this model to create an emotional connection.
