A one-day information session delivered by Paul Dillon for teachers and other professionals who work with young people

Trying to sort out 'fact from fiction' in the alcohol and other drug field can be difficult, particularly when it comes to young people. Many media stories on this topic are based on some degree of truth but can often be presented in a sensational manner leading many in the community to believe that we have a far greater drug problem than we actually do.

Paul Dillon has delivered professional development seminars for teachers and other professionals for many years. Since 2014 he has been presenting DARTA Seminar Days in both Sydney and Melbourne and has received an overwhelmingly positively response from delegates.

Once again Paul will be delivering a one-day information session in both Sydney and Melbourne, aiming to provide those working with young people, particularly teachers, with some basic information on current youth AOD trends in Australia, with a particular emphasis on school-based young people. Using the most up-to-date statistics and research, the workshop aims to empower attendees by providing the facts around some of the issues in this controversial area.

Although the workshop is not designed to provide teaching strategies or classroom activities, a list of quality web-based drug education resources will be provided to attendees, as well as information on other websites that are able to support professionals who work with young people.

More details regarding the specific topic areas to be covered at these sessions will be made available at a later date.

Please note that if you have attended a DARTA Seminar Day in the past the content will not be the same as for previous sessions.
