Coping with stress and alcohol is an online resource for parents. It aims to:

  • Raise awareness of the impact of stress on relationships and parental conflict on children.
  • Increase parents’ capacity to cope with stress and stop using alcohol as a coping mechanism. 

It is anticipated that an increase in coping skills and a reduction in the negative effects of stress will have a positive effect on hazardous drinking. Reducing stress for parents can lead to improved outcomes for children.

This guide is for frontline practitioners who work with parents. It will show you how to introduce parents to the resource and support them as they work through it. Before you proceed to the facilitation notes for supporting parents, we strongly recommend that you familiarise yourself with the evidence base behind the resource.
