This course considers young people’s use of NSPs, focusing on those most commonly used, recent trends, the reasons why young people may choose to use, and the level of risk associated with use.

The Training Session looks at young people’s use of NSPs and provides some of the underpinning knowledge for the following DANOS units (Drug and Alcohol National Occupational Standards).

AA1: Recognise indications of substance misuse and refer individuals to specialists
AB2: Support individuals who are substance users
AD1: Raise awareness about substances, their use and effect

The main learning objectives of the course are as follows:

  1. To be aware of recent trends, impact of changes to the legal status, and the types of NSPs young people are using
  2. To know the risks and effects when young people use psychoactive substances
  3. To assess risk and identify appropriate responses
  4. To consider brief advice and harm reduction as interventions
  5. To share and gain knowledge of services, groups, and facilities who can support the young person in reducing harm from NSPs

This course meets the Training, Support, and Development Standards as outlined in The Fostering Services (England) Regulations 2011.
