Title: The Cannabis Show, part of: Cannabis Intelligence Amsterdam (CIA).
Summary: The Cannabis Show is based on effective elements of school-based prevention and targets students with behaviour and other psychiatric problems in a special school in Amsterdam. Therefore the intervention combines information transfer and entertainment ('infotainment') and is presented by three peers playing different roles and the different parts of the show are separated by rap- and dance acts, a stand-up comedian and a kickbox demonstration. Knowledge on the effects of cannabis use increased significantly and cannabis use itself reduced significantly among the participants of this show. The effects on several other (intermediary) outcomes were less favourable. A follow-up evaluation is currently running. >>

Title: Family Motivational Intervention (FMI).
Summary: For cannabis using patients with recent onset of schizophrenia, early intensive interventions are not working due to non-compliance and little insight of clients into their illness. Family Motivational Intervention was specifically developed for this target group. The intervention has an inpatient treatment phase (2 months) and a subsequent outpatient treatment (12 months). Target outcomes are: reduction of cannabis use; increasing medication compliance; increasing well-being among parents; decreasing stress within the family related to the schizophrenic disorder; and improving the communication between parent and child. In a randomized controlled trial, 98 carers of 75 patients with schizophrenia and co morbid cannabis use were assigned to either Family Motivational Intervention (FMI) or psychoeducation (PE). Baseline and follow-up measures by the patients and their caretakers were done by a researcher who was blinded for the allocated condition. The first follow-up measurements (3 months after the last session of FMI) show promising outcomes. The response was 94% in the FMI group and 78% in the PE group. For the patients, the response was 71% in the FMI group and 77% of the PE group. Compared with the PE group, the FMI group showed significant more decrease in mean days of cannabis use and in mean grams of cannabis use, both during the last three months. The groups did not differ significantly in the increase in compliance with medication. In both groups, carers (family members) significantly improved on all outcomes (burden of disease, style of coping and mental health). >>

Title: Transfer of 'Quit the shit' - www.drugcom.de
Summary: With the transfer of the 'Quit the shit' counselling programme, the Federal Centre for Health Education (BZgA) initiated a pilot project aimed at decentralising online counselling to include counsellors of local drug counselling centres. So far, 'Quit the shit' counselling services had been provided centrally by the drugcom team. Within the scope of the first model phase, however, admittance was refused to more than 1 300 prospects because of exhausted counselling capacities. For this reason, the model project was further developed in order to integrate counselling resources of local drug prevention centres. The online project 'Quit the shit' was to be 'transferred' into the work of outpatient facilities. A series of different quality assurance measures was introduced to maintain good acceptance among clients and to continuously ensure the proven efficiency. The present questionnaire contains the details and the experience gathered within the scope of quality assurance as well as the transfer results. >>

Title: Maat in de shit
Summary: ‘Maat in de shit’ (Friend in n(w)eed) : is a curriculum for secundary school students to work on the subject of cannabis.

The teachers manual "Maat in de shit "contains numerous methodologies regarding communication and protective social norms. The package includes a teachers’ guide, a student brochure, a flyer for students and a poster. >>
