Professional Development workshop: “Teaching Marijuana Prevention”

NHPA is pleased to offer Substance Abuse Prevention Workshops designed for health educators and professionals seeking to expand their experience, knowledge, and skills related to prevention education.


Teaching Marijuana Prevention


The status of marijuana has undergone rapid legal and cultural shifts in recent years. These changes present specific challenges to school and community health educators. 

In this workshop, participants will explore the social and legal trends in acceptance, the pharmacology of marijuana, and effective strategies for responding to the misconceptions adolescents hold about marijuana.

Join us for an online professional development workshop where we will:

  • Examine trends in the social & legal acceptance of marijuana in the US
  • Consider effective strategies in responding to learners
  • Develop specific responses to challenging questions that may arise in school and community education settings

Register for a 2-part workshop starting March 26, 2018. Space is limited.
