Topic: Supporting children and families around parental substance use

Our Innovative Practice forums aim to increase knowledge about best practice approaches that contribute to better outcomes for children and families. This forum will focus on both the research and practice behind how we can better support children and families when there is parental substance misuse. Dr Stephanie Taplin is the Associate Director of Institute of Child Protection Studies (ICPS) at the Australian Catholic University and she will discuss her research around parental substance use and child protection.

Kerry Moore is the Senior Manager at Barnardos, South Coast Centre and Hunter/ Central Coast. Kerry will provide a practical example of the work Barnados are doing in their Substance Use in Pregnancy and Parenting Service (SUPPS).
