PCPC Brown Bag Professional Development Training: Substance Abuse Prevention and Detection for Home Visitors

The Pima County Parenting Coalition Announces a Brown Bag Professional Development Training.

Please bring your lunch and join us for 90 minute training.

 Substance Abuse Prevention and Detection for Home Visitors

The Community Prevention Coalition is a collaboration of over 100 individuals representing over 45 agencies from diverse sectors of the community that work together to prevent underage drinking,  Rx Drug misuse and illicit drug use among youth in Pima County. The Coalition employs multiple environmental strategies across multiple sectors as well as community based direct services. Parents of youth serve as a target for many of the Coalition interventions, in hopes of educating parents and providing them skills to effectively engage in their child’s life and serve as a protective factor against risky behaviors. Would you like to learn how to effectively communicate with youth about the harms and consequences of alcohol and other drugs of abuse? Do you know the statistics youth drug use for Tucson and Pima County? Would you like to learn how to tell if someone is under the influence, or what the signs and symptoms of drug using behavior look like? Maybe you just want to learn how to engage youth in making healthy choices. The Community Prevention Coalition is here to help. We will give you the tools you need to be a protective factor in your child’s life or to teach other parents how to effectively engage in their child’s life.
