Youth Substance Use: Perspectives on Theory, Research and Practice
Contemporary theoretical perspectives on youth substance use will be critiqued. Students will apply research strategies used to identify prevalence and risk factors associated with youth substance use patterns, and assess effectiveness of prevention and intervention approaches. A critical review of current approaches to prevention and treatment will be undertaken to increase awareness of the limitations and strengths of these interventions and their abilities to address child and youth care needs.
Graduate course in the Child and Youth Care program administered by the Faculty of Graduate Studies.
