Building Resilience in Families Under Stress, Second Edition

Supporting families affected by parental substance misuse and/or mental health problems - A handbook for practitioners

Jessica Kingsley Publishers, National Children's Bureau

Parental mental health problems and substance misuse affect a significant number of families. Many of these families are living in poverty or on low incomes, and in economically and socially challenging times, additional stresses are placed on them.

Building Resilience in Families Under Stress is a handbook for practitioners working to support vulnerable children and families. Drawing on key research and featuring pointers, models and practice examples, it looks at assessment of need, safeguarding children, minimising negative impact and how to keep families together where possible. Importantly, it also considers how to overcome practical barriers to providing effective support at individual and organisational levels.

This is an invaluable resource for any professionals working with families affected by parental mental health problems or substance misuse.
