You are not on your own: A booklet to help children and adults talk about a parent’s drinking

The booklet is aimed at children aged 8–12, but can be adapted to suit the child you are working with. It is designed to help you have a conversation with a child where there is an adult in their life drinking too much. You might be using this resource on its own or as a part of a larger piece of work you are doing with this child or their family. To help you with this there are some simple exercises for the child to complete.
