ALM: Youth Alcohol and Other Drugs and Sexual Health

This ALM forms the second part of the three-module headspace Clinical Training syllabus.

This activity seeks to educate GPs on issues surrounding alcohol and other drug use and sexual health in youth, as well as their mental health implications. The training uses a number of case studies to explore the best possible evidence-based care for young people in an effective and inclusive manner.

This ALM consists of four sequential parts. Each part will take approximately one and a half hours to complete.

  • Apply strategies that assist with engagement and assessment of young people utilising a non-judgemental approach.
  • Gain an understanding of some commonly used assessment tools and instruments including the principles of Motivational Interviewing.
