Each year we lose far too many people to overdose (lets face it, one person dead is ‘too many’) so I decided it was about time I wrote a new workshop to try and help address the situation.
This latest workshop covers a range of overdose issues and has been designed to be run either as a full workshop, or as separate sections in NSP or one to one sessions.
This is one of the biggest pieces of work that I’ve produced in the last year for the site (about 2 months to make, test and format), and I’m really happy with it. The workshop is split into the following sections:
The sessions are really good with loads of areas you could spin off into discussions. Good interactive type sessions, it’s really open to the needs of any group
After the initial popularity of this workshop I designed a couple of extra resources.
One of the areas of the workshop that lends itself to being used on its own is the ‘Whats your Score’ risk assessment. Because it’s so suited to being used as a quick intervention tool I’ve designed a promotional poster to go up in projects.
For people who prefer to use a presentation while running workshops I’ve designed a ‘Prezi’ to go along side which can be viewed from the link below.
