Hammered: A Sober Look at Youth and Alcohol
This booklet features a photovoice project exploring the impact of alcohol on Saskatchewan youth as viewed and experienced by young people. Photovoice is a technique that gives a “voice” to people whose voices are often unheard or ignored. Through powerful photographs and the words of youth, Hammered: A Sober Look at Youth and Alcohol is relevant to all generations, as it looks at alcohol use in youth culture.
These 8.5 x 11 inch posters, developed by Childbirth Graphics, assist healthcare professionals in discussing alcohol use with their patients. Although these posters do not focus on FASD, they can be used to help patients understand that alcohol is one of many factors which can impact the development of the fetus.Audience: Healthcare Professionals and their PatientsSKU: 3-143
