About this Event
Funded by the Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, KELY Support Group has developed a workshop, Parents and Teachers Workshop - Youth Alcohol Consumption and Communication, under the Jockey Club “Moments not Wasted” Youth Education Programme, which aims to increase the awareness of the harms of alcohol and reduce its consumption among youth. We invite you to participate in our workshop on youth alcohol consumption in Hong Kong in hopes of building a supportive community for the youth and each other.
The issue of mental health has been an ongoing discussion in light of the current environment in Hong Kong. Several research have concluded that youth have increased their uptake in alcohol during these difficult times. As alcohol becomes a way to distance from stressors or challenges an individual may be facing, continued avoidance of life's challenges and lack of healthy coping mechanisms can be direct facilitators of problematic drinking down the road. With this, the role of parents and teachers as role models becomes even more critical in the lives of the youth. With the ever-changing society and increasing access to alcohol and other risky behaviours, it is essential that parents and teachers engage their children and students in conversations that give guidance and empathise on situations where they may face peer pressure.
This interactive workshop will cover the following topics:
• General knowledge and trends on alcohol in Hong Kong
• Parental protective factors against youth alcohol consumption
• Practical communication skills with youth
• Channels for help-seeking around alcohol and other issues
The session will be carried out in English. The target audience includes: parents, teachers, or adults that have frequent contact with youth engaged in alcohol consumption.
