Using a Health Basis to Prevent Student Marijuana Use

Tuesday, October 7, 2014 (2pm - 3pm US/Eastern)



While laws and culture around marijuana use are changing, the health basis for prevention remains the same. Join Freedom from Chemical Dependency (FCD) in a timely discussion about student marijuana use and what you can do to keep healthy kids healthy, with an emphasis on the practical steps Episcopal schools can take to reduce student use and change risky student attitudes. From this webinar, you'll learn:

  • what adolescent marijuana use trends look like
  • how to talk with kids about marijuana from a health perspective
  • what current research says about marijuana, the teen brain, and the consequences of use
  • which prevention initiatives in schools are effective in reducing marijuana use
  • what to say when students ask tough questions about marijuana
  • the difference between individual and community-based prevention efforts, and how to use both in your school to prevent student marijuana use
  • how to prioritize a prevention climate, not just a program, when it comes to adolescent marijuana use
