Drug use and parenting support - a conversation about power
June 10, 2022
Friday 10 June 2022
A safe space for parents, practitioners, policy-makers and researchers to discuss and reflect on drug use and family life.
In this seminar, our speakers reflect on issues of power, parental drug use, and services who support families affected by it.
Drawing on ongoing research with families affected by parental drug use, and some of the health and social care services who work with those families, this seminar explores how ‘power’ is felt and used by both parents and services.
We will think about different ways that power might be understood and negotiated by those involved – to what extent people feel in control of what is going on, if and how this may change, and why it might need to.
