Sex and Drugs and Alcohol

Legal and illegal substances to enhance pleasure and increase sexual performance have been widely used throughout history. With the onset of the HIV epidemic the relationship between drug use and risky sexual behaviour has increasingly become the focus of attention.

In this training programme we will look at the relationship between sex, drugs and alcohol and risk behaviour; the reasons why people use drugs or drink alcohol when intending to have a sexual encounter and the risks associated with its use. We will also consider effective communication strategies and treatment approaches to encourage lifestyle changes.

Who should attend?
Anybody who is interested and/or whose work is somehow related to the subject area. This includes those working in the broader field of sexual health and substance misuse and those working with young people.
