The number of youth smoking and vaping cases has been on the rise over the years, causing concerns about potential health issues for these young people. With the increasing influence of social media and legalization in neighbouring countries, our youths' perception and receptivity to vaping may be influenced. This permissiveness towards vaping is not only due to its "coolness" and trendiness but also the lack of knowledge and awareness of its harmful effects. Many youths still believe that vaping is a less harmful alternative to smoking cigarettes or using tobacco products.

 

Objectives

The objective of this one-day workshop is to provide educators and helping professionals:

  • Latest updates, trends, and knowledge on vaping so that they are well-informed and can debunk any myths they may hear from their students or youths.

  • Practical skills to support their students and youths in reducing and eventually quitting their vaping habits.

 

Topics 

The topics that will be covered in this one-day workshop include:

  • Latest Singapore statistics and legislation on youth smoking and vaping

  • Effects of nicotine on youth brain development

  • Nicotine addiction and withdrawal symptoms
