Participants in the Alcocups course weren't just playing this Wii game for the fun of it - it was educational and the glasses affected their ability at the same level as a drunk. Instructor Ash Gurney watches on.
Participants in the alcohol awareness training course at the Salvation Army Hall in Seymour last week weren’t just playing this Wii game for the fun of it — it was educational and the glasses affected their ability at the same level as being incapacitated by alcohol.
Pathways, the Salvation Army and AlcoCups provided professionals from Nexus Primary Health, Berry Street, Mitchell Shire Council and the Salvation Army with a specialised alcohol education training session. The training was funded by the Foundation for Alcohol Research and Education (FARE) to promote strategies to address binge drinking to youth aged between 15 and 21 years of age.
Professionals who attended the training were able to then implement specialised alcohol education strategies to the specific target audience using the latest resources and approaches around binge drinking.
AlcoCups managing director Ashley Gurney said the aim of the training was to provide professionals with further skills to deliver information in regards to alcohol and youth
