At the end of the training Alcohol Services Staff will be able to work with their clients who are parents in a supportive way that focuses on the needs and safety of children. This will be achieved by providing participants with an opportunity to: Address and review their understanding of parenting capacity and how this affects the meeting of children's needs; Recognise what goes to make up 'good enough' parenting and the ways in which this impacts on how children's needs are met; Identify the ways problem-drinking by parents can negatively affect parenting and the care and development of children; and Begin to develop an empowering way of working with parents with alcohol problems that promotes protective parenting and a meeting of children's needs.
