Virtual College Substance Awareness Speaker

An “Edutaining” Virtual Substance Awareness Presentation for Colleges

This edutaining presentation is more important than ever.  Times of change and transition are difficult enough without the added stress of social distancing, isolation, and virtual learning that comes with COVID-19.  During these times there can be an increased strain on your students’ mental health. 

Many college students, especially those entering college for the first time, have a distorted view of substance use and abuse in college.  In addition to this, during these challenging times it can increase the risk of substance use and abuse as they are looking for ways to cope with or escape from these new challenges. 

College substance awareness speaker Robert Hackenson Jr. discusses all of these challenges while providing your students with different perspectives and the necessary tools and techniques to make positive choices during these unprecedented times. 

This presentation covers: 

  • The negative college misperceptions and influences in college
  • The social and emotional challenges that lay ahead and the substance abuse traps
  • Perceptions vs. realities of substance use and abuse
  • Risks of depending on alcohol, vaping nicotine, THC, etc. 
  • Social and emotional challenges your students will face. 
  • Changing your thinking during stressful times
  • How to choose social and emotional influences 
  • Getting good at stress
  • Dealing with life circumstances
  • Making decisions with purpose to build the future they want for themselves
