What is it about?
Families in which there is substance use go through typical experiences that influence the way children and other members function. It is imperative to recognise and interrupt disempowering or life diminishing systems and cultural norms that stifle children and family members and limit their contribution to child and family wellbeing. This webinar highlights the impact of alcohol and other substance use on children and families and possible interventions that build resilience.
