"The environment of children living with addictive adults has been characterised by lack of parenting, poor home management and a lack of family communications skills.Children living in homes where there is parental substance abuse can find life difficult, unpredictable and confusing and they may exhibit signs of depression and anxiety more than children of non-addictive parents.
This interactive workshop will look at ways to support children and young people living with addictive adults; and ways to help them to take care of themselves." [from the flyer]
Facilitated by Stephen Scott, Salavation Army Officer and Carole Scott from a nursing background.
This is a workshop in the Skiylight “Talking to Kids About..” series. These workshops provide professional development for those working in environments where they are supporting people through challenging life events and crises.
