AOD and the Brain - Part 2 is the second of a two-part workshop. Registration to Part 1 is available separately here.

This workshop targets practitioners working in specialist alcohol and drug and mental health settings who want to develop an in-depth neurobiological understanding of how psychoactive substances affect the brain and body.  It is the second session of a 2-part workshop. 

By the end of this session learners will be able to:

  • Develop a more in-depth understanding of brain pharmacokinetics
  • Identify different routes of administration and how this impacts a person's experience and risk exposure
  • Demonstrate a fundamental understanding of how a substance moves through the body, including concepts of absorption, distribution, bioavailability, metabolism, elimination and drug half-lives.
  • How dependence develops and can be assessed to inform treatment planning.

To attend the virtual classroom please ensure:

  • Your device has reliable internet to stream video and audio
  • Your camera is able to remain on for the full duration of the workshop (except during designated breaks or as advised by the facilitator) and you have a microphone to enable you to engage in activities and discussions;
  • You have access to the participant workbook (either electronically on a second screen, or a printed copy);
  • You are in a quiet, appropriate space with minimal distractions;
  • You are logged in on an individual device (do not join workshop as a group with other registered or non-registered participants).
