Code: BH/21/0170 BHSCP - The Impact of Parental Substance Misuse Part Two

Some of the serious effects of parental substance misuse for children include abuse, neglect, emotional problems, educational difficulties, being young carers of parents or siblings, and a potential to later use drugs or alcohol themselves.

This course is included within the training programme as it clearly highlights these issues facing children and young people who live within the households where substance misuse is an issue. You will learn about what agency services are available to support the whole family, thus reducing or removing the potential risk/s of abuse.

This training is provided by Brighton & Hove Safeguarding Children Partnership (BHSCP) in partnership with an external trainer.

The session will be split into two 90 minute presentations using microsoft teams.
