NEW: Cannabis-induced Caetextia

This course unravels the three paradoxical effects of cannabis use that cause considerable confusion in the substance abuse field.

This course unravels the three paradoxical effects of cannabis use that cause considerable confusion in the substance abuse field. These are namely: why using cannabis increases the risk of developing mental health problems like depression and schizophrenia; why some people find that cannabis helps them to relax, reduce stress and alleviate the symptoms of mental health problems like depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder, and why some people find that using cannabis gives rise to unusual thoughts and access to imagination and creativity.

The day will also demonstrate, with exercises, how to use this knowledge so that you can help people damaged by cannabis use more effectively.

Who should attend?
Professionals with a special interest in the relationship between cannabis and mental health issues, and anyone who wishes to improve the work they do with those who use cannabis including; psychotherapists and counsellors; substance misuse workers; mental health recovery workers; youth and social workers; family support workers, family therapists; psychologists; teachers; GPs and health visitors; all those involved in mental health or the caring professions.

Parents of those who use cannabis and cannabis users who wish to make more informed decisions, or add to their understanding, will also benefit.
