Rebels with a Cause: Working with Adolescents Using Action Techniques with Mario Cossa

Module 6. Sex and Drugs and Rock “n” Roll – Adolescents and addictions.

Substance use, abuse, and addictions can be detrimental to healthy adolescent development. The "Just Say No" approach was tried and failed. Adolescents need the opportunity to receive clear information and consider consequences of actions in a safe and supportive environment. This module outlines ways to use sociodrama and psychodrama to provide both the information and the tools for making healthy decisions.
