Alcohol & Other Drugs: A Virtual Tool for College Students
When it comes to alcohol and other drug misuse prevention training, colleges and universities should have a training solution that students find engaging and relatable, and that has a long-term impact on their attitude and behaviors.

Students need the opportunity to practice and apply new skills so that the learning material resonates when they are faced with real-life decisions.

How can institutions prepare students to meaningfully apply what they learn and make decisions around alcohol and other drug use that align with their goals and values?

Join Yoo-Jin Kang, Senior Training & Technical Assistance Specialist for the National Workplace Resource Center at Futures Without Violence, and Kayce Matthews, Director of the Coalition for Safe & Healthy Campus Communities (CHASCo), for a presentation about the critical gaps in current prevention training solutions for students, followed by a Q&A session.

These experts will be joined by members of the product development team from health simulation company Kognito to discuss:

-- The need for a new approach to alcohol prevention programs that goes beyond compliance to set students up for success
-- How virtual role-play conversations empower students with important skills like applying refusal strategies, bystander intervention, referring peers to help, and setting personal goals
-- An inside look at how Alcohol & Other Drug Misuse Prevention for Students, Kognito's new course for college and university students, can assist in schools’ proactive efforts

Don’t miss this chance to gain valuable insights that can help you better support your students.
