About Course

Alcohol and Violence Prevention

Getting drunk seems to be a right-of passage for many young Scots. Being around alcohol consumption also increases your risk of exposure to aggressive behaviour, which can escalate to violence in some cases.

This online training is intended to create space to talk through the issue of alcohol and its relationship to violence in Scotland. It’s not about saying to young people, ‘don’t drink!’ or ‘never go out’ or ‘avoid certain crowds’, because we know from experience and evidence that those 'Just Say No' approaches have little impact on young people’s behaviour.

No Knives Better Lives believes in empowering young people to deal with situations more effectively, by having information which can help understand certain situations and by equipping them to help each other be safe and secure.

No Knives Better Lives believes that young people have a right to be heard and to express their opinions.

Throughout the online training course there are examples of activities, discussion points, downloads and stories that allow an exchange of information between practitioners and young people.

PLEASE make these activities and discussions your own by adapting them for your audience’s needs. You can offer prizes, or make a display or presentation of the group’s efforts. BE CREATIVE!
