Carers will gain insight into the role of risk taking in adolescent development and in the context of substance use, and understand:

  • how young people assess risk and make decisions
  • why adolescents use drugs and how this relates to adolescent development
  • drivers of risk and how risk relates to resilience
  • how to influence the types of risks young people take and reduce potential harm.

It will explore why young people in care are vulnerable to using alcohol or other drugs in the future and provide strategies to reduce these vulnerabilities
