How can teachers prevent substance abuse?
Substance abuse is not very common at school in general. It usually manifests itself as part of problem behaviour and efforts should be made to prevent it. But first we should find out why the behaviour occurs.
Deciding is a very difficult stage in a person’s life. It is a very difficult stage in life. When puberty starts, teenagers usually taste alcohol for the first time, smoke and try other forbidden things.
It is very important to develop young people’s personal and social skills to help them protect themselves from drinking. It is therefore important for young people to be able to make decisions, choose who to talk to and resist peer pressure.
The #edumap project has produced an educational video for teachers.
