Children and their families need extra support when parents depend on one or more substances to fulfil their physical, social or psychological needs.
Against the backdrop of the National Service Framework for Children, Young People and Maternity Services, this course will enhance your understanding of substance abuse among parents. It will increase your ability to recognise and respond to the effects of substance abuse on families, in the short and long term. You’ll also explore which agencies may be available to help and provide support for children, families and practitioners.
To access this course, you will be working in a role which involves contact with parents who are abusing one or more substances.
