MAIN-E. Smoke Screens:  Cannabis, Adolescents, and the Impact on Families and Communities

Level: Intermediate

Presenter: James Campbell, LPC, LAC, MAC, CACII

Description: With marijuana being so prevalent in our culture, it can be easy to become desensitized to its impact on those we serve.  Smoke Screens is a look into the developmental and systemic factors associated with cannabis and other drug use as well as a consideration of the impact of that use on individuals, families, and communities.  Specific attention will be given to both the risk and protective factors for adolescents associated with marijuana and other substance use, and steps we can take as we seek to help the young people in our lives navigate the world in which they live will be explored.
