Code: BH/21/1700 Back on Track – Starting Conversations with Parents about their alcohol use

There are a higher number of parents who are dependent on alcohol in Brighton and Hove than the national average. We know that for many parents it may take lots of conversations with different people for them to recognise they are drinking to a concerning level and to think about getting help. This course is aimed at any frontline staff who might be working with families, who may have an opportunity to speak to them about their alcohol use. It will focus on the skills that staff who may not have had experience or knowledge of alcohol and substance misuse can use if they have concerns about a family they are working with, and where they can signpost and refer parents and families to in Brighton and Hove. There will also be opportunity to discuss past or current situations where you might have had concerns about a parents alcohol use. Course is led by Oasis Project Senior Therapist.
