Smashed n Stoned Facilitator Training

December 04, 2014 at 10:42 AM

The Smashed n Stoned Facilitator Training is being delivered throughout New Zealand  by Odyssey and the Health Promotion Agency. The programme is a free, fun and interactive two day training, with lunch provided for anyone who is working with young people (this could be people working with youth in communities, through Council, Youth clubs, churches, MH services, Addiction services, schools, etc).


What is Smashed ’n Stoned?

Smashed ’n Stoned? is an early intervention programme to assist young people to think about their alcohol and drug use, draw on their own strengths, and make choices that improve their health and wellbeing. It was adapted for New Zealand from the adult guided self-change programme developed by Canadian Professor Linda Sobell.

Smashed ’n Stoned?’ is designed for 13 to 18 year olds whose alcohol or drug use puts them at risk. It is recommended for groups of three to six young people working with a trained counsellor or youth worker. The programme is not suitable for use as a whole class activity or for use with larger groups of young people.

About the training

The facilitator training is delivered by the Youth Odyssey team and is two days in length. The cost of training is covered by the Health Promotion Agency. All that it will cost participants (or their organisation) is their time, overnight accommodation (if needed) and cost associated with getting there.
