The purpose of this webinar is to help the participants develop a comprehensive understanding of and recognition of the links between alcohol and various drugs of abuse and aggression and violent behaviors among adolescents. Additionally, it is designed to help the participant gain a deeper appreciation for the need for comprehensive evaluation of both aggression and violence relative to adolescent substance use disorders. Relative to specific substances the three critical times in which aggression and/or violence is most likely to occur is discussed (drug acquisition, usage and recovery phases). Harm reductive methods and techniques are highlighted in this webinar as a progressive way to address both substance use and aggressive and violent behaviors.
1.5 Substance Use CEs will be issued for this webinar upon completed the post test. Social workers are reminded to check with their state licensing boards to confirm that any individual course is accepted for continuing education in their state.
