"Framing, Recognizing, and Responding: A Workshop on the Impact of Addiction"

Andy Short, Co-Director of Improbable Players

This workshop will use theatricality and role play to explore the necessity of intervention with young folks dealing with substance addiction, personally or within their families. The workshop will give an overview of current addiction consequences to frame the issue. Then a primer on mandated reporting will be given to understand the limits of responsibility. Finally, participants will actually practice using appropriate non-blaming language to have these conversations.
