Parental Substance Misuse and Child Welfare

by Brynna Kroll & Andy Taylor - £25.00  Jessica Kingsley Publishers (2002)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781853027918 | ISBN 10: 185302791x

Focusing on the needs of children of substance misusing parents and the dilemmas faced by professionals working with them, this comprehensive book brings together for the first time theoretical and practice issues for all those involved with the crossover between responses to drug and alcohol problems and child welfare.
 
Describing the effects of substance misuse on 'good enough' parenting and attachment (and taking into account theories about substance use), the authors analyse the issues facing children, including the impact on psychological and emotional development.
 
Emphasising the importance of developing holistic approaches, involving both child care and drug and alcohol agencies as well as families, this book presents a practical model for risk assessment and intervention that balances the 'competing' needs of parents and their children. It is an essential resource for all those working or training to work in the fields of child welfare, substance misuse, health, education and criminal justice.
