Too Good for Drugs and Violence Infusion (Grades 11-12)

Too Good for Drugs and Violence Infusion (TGD/VI) is a supplemental program for students who have participated in Too Good for Drugs and Violence (TGFD/V). Training is provided to staff on how to infuse the lessons learned during participation in TGFD/V as a cohesive addition to their current English, Science, Health, and Social Studies curricula. The infusion lessons continue to develop students’ resiliency skills through increased coping with stress skills and developing healthy decision making to avoid drinking or using drugs as a stress reduction technique.

Students also discover their personal core values, and develop skills in empathy and conflict reduction. Students learn about the harmful effects of substance on body, brain and information on Fetal Alcohol Syndrome.

Audience: Teachers of English, Science, Health, Social Studies for students in grades 11 and 12.

Session: One two-hour training for teachers.
