Paul Dillon Parent Presentation

June 16 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

We invite Trinity College and Mercedes College Parents and Carers to join us for a special presentation by Paul Dillon, founder and Director of Drug and Alcohol Research and Training Australia (DARTA) and author of the book Teenagers, Alcohol and Drugs.
During adolescence, teens develop a biological need to be around friends and it is important to provide them with opportunities to socialise with their peers whenever possible. Using the most current data, this presentation by Paul Dillon will examine the use of alcohol and other drugs by school-based young people. Some simple strategies will be provided to help ensure teens are able to interact with friends on a Saturday night and, at the same time, reduce the risk of underage drinking and the potential dangers associated with such behaviour. It aims to empower parents with a positive message and assist them in having open and honest family discussions in this complex area.
