This resource has been commissioned by New South Wales (NSW) Health to provide information about the family’s role in preventing alcohol-related harm in young people. The resource is designed to inform the practice of drug and alcohol workers, mental health workers, outreach​ workers, psychologists, counsellors, health promotion and prevention project managers/officers, social workers, special population workers and Community Drug Action Team (CDAT) project officers.

The resource includes both information and practical tips. The two objectives of this resource are:

  • to improve workers’ understanding of the current research-based findings about how families, in particular parents, can prevent alcohol-related harm among young people; and
  • to provide ‘best practice’ examples of effective actions, programs and strategies that can be used in professional practice to enhance services to families.
