This workshop will explore the ways society portrays drugs, gangs, and sex, and these portrayals effect our youth. Information will be provided about Ohio drug trends. Participants will explore a model of a teen’s bedroom, seeking possible cues or signs that could hint to risky and/or illegal activity, including underage drinking, eating disorders, and substance abuse. Participants will gain strategies for working with youth and primary parents who demonstrate trauma indicators that manifest in gang involvement or the abuse of drugs and alcohol. Information about local resources and support will be provided.
