Brief summary:
This is a 3 hour interactive lecture exploring the impact of parental use of alcohol and other drugs on the child. The focus will be on the child’s experience and the assessment of risk and protective factors. Consideration will be given to the challenges faced by practitioners in adults and children’s services.

At the end of this event participants will be able to:
• Identify the potential impact of alcohol and other drugs on parenting
• Identify the potential impact on children living with parents who are using alcohol and other drugs
• Use a holistic model to assess risks and protective factors in families
• Use a child focussed model of change to identify appropriate interventions.
