Friday, March 9th and 16th, members of the health teams of Amalgama7 have given four workshops for the prevention of risk behaviours such as: the use and abuse of new technologies, drugs, and eating disorders in teenagers and young people. These sessions are aimed at students of the 2nd year of the post-compulsory education of the Pia Nostra Senyora School of Barcelona.
The workshop “Mobile, chat and network: from use to abuse” aims to raise awareness among students about the risks of misuse of new technologies (mobile, computers, video games…) and promote responsible use among teenagers and young people.
The objective of the workshop on “Eating Disorders” aims to show students the risks and consequences of poor nutrition and different eating disorders, while expressing their doubts, opinions or experiences in this regard.
Finally, the workshop “Use and abuse of drugs in teenagers and young people” makes a brief historical and cultural tour of the different types of psychoactive substances most consumed among teenagers and young people of welfare societies (tobacco, alcohol, cannabis derivatives, designer drugs, cocaine…) and shows the possible consequences of its use.
