'Ask me about me' DVD on parental substance misuse

We created 'Ask me about me', a DVD resource that is designed for awareness-raising and training on the impact on children that parental drug and alcohol misuse can have.

The DVD is an invaluable resource for professionals who want to ensure that their practice is based on the child’s perspective.

Ask me about me is a sort of toolbox. It contains eight short films for use with a wide variety of audiences. It also comes with a training guide containing suggested session plans, activities and general tips.

Below, watch samples of the video and learn how to order the DVD.
