NCPIC - National Cannabis Prevention and Information Centre

Training and Workshops

One of the ways that the Centre will achieve our goals is by delivering training to a range of target audiences, including alcohol and drugs and the allied health sector, youth sector as well as the general community.

A range of interactive workshops are being offered free of charge to workers with the latest evidence-based information and interventions on cannabis use and cannabis use disorders that can be used when working with either adults or adolescents. They contain didactic and skills-based components and are framed around core competencies.

The workshops currently available are as follows:

    Each workshop has a recommended maximum number of participants.

    NCPIC has developed a collection of clinical resources for those working in the field which will aid them when working with clients who use cannabis. Resources and assessment tools can be downloaded and printed out as pdfs below. Printed copies of the resources may be ordered from the Clinical Resources Order Form. Please note that these are to be used in conjunction with NCPIC’s training sessions and are not stand-alone publications for general community use.

    Cannabis and Consequences II is a program developed by Turning Point Alcohol and Drug Centre with 12 classroom activities for secondary school students, based on the latest evidence and research around cannabis. The aim of the package is to develop students’ knowledge, skills and understanding about cannabis and the multiple impacts it can have on a person’s life. The package is grounded in a universal preventative framework and calls upon the most recent evidence for effective drug and alcohol education in schools. Free one-day training sessions are available in each capital city in April – May 2014. Online training is also available. Please visit www.turningpoint.org.au/cannabistraining for more information.
