There's still time to provide input on a series of resources we're planning for child and family professionals who don’t have specialist expertise in the AOD area:
- What do you need to be most effective when working with families affected by AOD misuse?
- What are the gaps in your knowledge?
- What types of resources would you find most useful?
Please send your ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org or simply reply to this email.
