What will I study?

Hidden Harm – the effect of parental drug and alcohol misuse on children

It is estimated that there are 1.5 million children of problem drug and alcohol users in the UK. (ACMD 2006). Services naturally focus their attention on the problem user; but in this process, the effects on the children can be overlooked. There is now a government directive that aims to raise awareness of this issue and increase opportunities for early intervention.

This course is designed for anyone who works with children, young people and their families. The course aims to raise awareness of the issues affecting the children of problem substance users. It helps the learner to spot the signs of harm and identify appropriate windows of opportunity to break the cycle and safeguard the child.

The course has been developed by 5 Drug and Alcohol teams nationally and peer reviewed by panels of experts in the field and comes with an online assessment and certificate on achieving a satisfactory pass mark.
