Substance misuse - understanding families affected by drugs and alcohol
Working effectively with individuals and families with multiple and complex needs requires staff to have an understanding of substance misuse and its effects.
This practical programme provides an overview of substance misuse and the behaviours associated with their use and those displayed by their carers. The course will provide staff with the skills to use processes involved with changing behaviour and to consider the effect on parenting and what constitutes ‘good enough’ in the context of substance misuse.
It is practical and “hands-on” and produces more confident and competent practitioners who are ready to deliver positive and effective support to individuals and families.
