Product Description:

Title: Parents Who Misuse Drugs and Alcohol <>Binding: Paperback <>Author: Forrester, Donald <>Publisher: Wiley-Blackwell

Review:

"There are some books that deserve a place in the small and well-thumbed libraries that accrue in practice settings, and this is one of them. I would regard it as essential reading for all those seeking to develop or improve practice with substance-misusing parents." (Oxford Journals Clippings, 1 January 2012)

"The practice of social work in relation to children at risk and the problem of substance misuse are both high up the public policy agenda and never out of the media spotlight. Forrester and Harwin draw on their own important research and that of others to raise challenging questions, not only about how social workers find it difficult to deal effectively with parental alcohol and drug problems, but also about the need to bring fresh thinking to social work more generally. The issues they raise, in a thoroughly engaging and scholarly way, make this a key text for all those concerned about families and children at risk and about the future of the social work profession.
--Jim Orford, Professor of Psychology, University of Birmingham, UK
