Alcohol Forum Ireland Webinar Wednesdays kicks off with ‘Moving Beyond the Individual: Why families matter in the alcohol and other drug field (April 3rd)

Alcohol Forum Ireland (AFI) is delighted to announce their ‘Webinar Wednesdays’ series for 2024. More topics & more excellent speakers to be announced, with a mix of topics relevant to those working in treatment, family support, public health, community action & prevention. AFI works across all of these workstreams and so our series will reflect this diversity. These are short 90minute webinars which will run from 10-11.30am.

Our first Webinar Wednesday takes place on Wednesday, April 3rd and is hosted by our family support team.  It will be an opportunity to highlight the supports and programmes we have available and to share what we have learned over 15 years delivering supports to families. Our model of work recognises that alcohol use issues impact on the whole family; children, spouses and wider family networks. We are delighted to have Jennifer McKinney working with us to deliver this online training. Jennifer is a lecturer in Queens University Belfast and is a systemic psychotherapist with over 20 years working with children and families and currently specialising in trauma. 

There is a real need for families & children to be seen, supported & involved in the areas of treatment, recovery and family support. To book a place on this or any of our webinars, simply email [email protected] indicating which date you would like to attend. After registering, you will receive a link for the webinar.
