AUT Establishes Dialogue With School Students and Parents

ssfinaleOver 120 parents and students and school officials responded to the invitation of AUT and the Catholic Schools Association to attend a session on February 21 with psychiatrist Dr Wadih Naja and psychologist Dr Nabil Khoury about all forms of addiction that can affect the success of school students in their studies and in official exams.

Wadih Naja spoke of the several addictions to drugs and alcohol and pointed to the very important role to be assumed by parents at home to prevent such addiction from affecting their children. According to Naja, addiction hits children between the ages of 12 and 16 in most cases in Lebanon and worldwide and it is during school years that parents have to be the most watchful. Effects on concentration and memory were explained by Naja who is chief of psychiatry at the Lebanese University Faculty of Medicine. As to alcohol addiction, Naja said that research shows that the earlier children have a taste of alcohol, the more probable is that they fall into alcohol addiction. 

Khoury tackled the problem of addiction to electronic devices and  the effect it has on concentration and school success.
