Held in August 2015. This seminar provided an opportunity to strengthen our understanding of the impact of drug use on children and families and how we can best engage and work with parents carers with substance abuse problems to care and protect their children. Keynote presentations by Professor Alex Wodak, Professor David Best, Sharon Dawes and Stefan Gruenert provided information on working with families holistically to address drug use, better understanding ‘Ice’, and engaging children living with parents who use substances.
