A series of scenarios and accompanying activities have been developed to be used as part of a ‘strength-based approach’ to school-based drug education.
Background information for teachers is also provided on the different substances to help stimulate classroom discussion. As well as improving students’ knowledge about different drugs and their related harms, this can also assist teachers to challenge and correct misinformation.
These scenarios have been designed to introduce and/or strengthen a range of skills including:
- Identifying risks
- Assertiveness and refusal skills
- Problem solving
- Critical thinking
- Challenging misinformation
- Evaluating consequences
