Substance misuse in families with young children (16/05/2018)




A masterclass for anyone.

This masterclass is compulsory for students who are studying for the University Certificate Public Health Foundations (Children and Families).

This masterclass concerns families where young children are in danger of significant harm. Research tells us that young children who are exposed to substance abuse (drugs, solvents, smoking and alcohol), domestic violence and parental mental health problems are at risk. They are more likely to suffer poor physical, emotional and social health, and poor educational outcomes. There is evidence to show that if these issues are picked up early, we can prevent harm. Understanding how to safeguard children and work within statutory requirements is mandatory for all practitioners who work with children and families.
