A Little Book of Tobacco
Activities to Explore Smoking Issues with Young People
For many young people, smoking is everywhere – people on television and in films smoke, their parents might smoke, and many of their friends will probably smoke. If everyone else is doing it, why shouldn't they?
This resource is packed with activities that inform young people about the facts and help them to think and talk about all the issues related to smoking so that they can make positive, informed choices. The activities consider how smoking can affect health, addiction, how to cope with peer pressure, smoking and the media, young people's attitudes to smoking, and smoking and society. Activities on giving up smoking, support and motivation are also included.
These fun but informative activities will be great to use with young people aged 13–19, in groups and on-to-one. Teachers, youth workers, drug support workers, youth offending teams and social workers will all find this an invaluable resource.
Vanessa Rogers has written a book full of resources and activities to help teachers inform and educate young people... This book is equally helpful in PSHE sessions, one-to-one conversations or whenever the topic of smoking is raised in class. – Special Magazine
Her book, subtitled Activities to explore smoking issues with young people, supports the development of creative youth work and social education... an ideal aid to youth workers who want to enable young people to make an informed choice as to whether or not to smoke. – BACP Children & Young People
The book is a great way for teachers to introduce the topic and provide young people with factual information about smoking, including some of the health risks and media perceptions. – Youth in Mind
