Alcohol's harm to others conference - Beyond the drinker


9:30 - 16:00
Hilton Grosvenor, Edinburgh

?The negative effects of excessive drinking on family members, and particularly on children, remain a cause for concern and have to be considered a pertinent public health issue?Children are the most severely affected, since they can do little to protect themselves from the direct or indirect consequences of parental drinking.? (WHO, 2001)

This conference will explore the impact of excessive drinking on people other than the drinker, with a particular focus on children and young people. The day will be a mix of international and local expert speakers, including young people themselves, and topical workshops. We are delighted that Professor Robin Room will be our keynote speaker.

The delegate fee is 80 per person which includes lunch and refreshments.
