Episode 261 - Dr. Stephanie Elias Sarabia and Dr. Kathleen Ray: Lessons Learned from Portugal’s Drug Decriminalization Policy: Educating Students on Alternative Models
Monday, April 08, 2019, 9:35:46 AM
In this episode, our guests Dr. Stephanie Elias Sarabia and Dr. Kathleen Ray describe the Ramapo College study abroad program, and how exposure to Portugal’s system has heightened students understanding of the political, legal, and social context of decriminalization. They provide an overview of Portugal’s drug decriminalization policy, and compare and contrast how the US differs from Portugal in regards to approaching substance abuse. Drs. Elias Sarabia and Ray emphasize the need for social workers to challenge our current belief systems regarding drug addiction and treatment, and provide strategies for educators interested in building an international program.
