A s we get closer to the October 2018 marijuana legalization date, universities and colleges are developing and rolling out training programs to meet the need
The Child & Youth Care with Addictions Support Worker program is designed to teach you the practical skills and theory to work with children, adolescents, and families with social, emotional, mental health, behavioral or concerns.
You will learn how to collaborate with colleagues such as educators, medical and social worker professionals, correctional staff and community partners to assist them with implementing appropriate prevention/intervention strategies to create change.
The Addictions Support courses explore the emotional, physical and social effects of drugs, alcohol, and gambling, and teach effective case management skills.
You will also receive First Aid/CPR training and will participate in an externship to apply class room learning into real work application.
