About the Course:

Each parent has a unique experience and perspective on the topic of alcohol, but one thing unites most parents: the quandary that results when parents combine drinking with their attitudes, beliefs and behaviors around drinking. How parents stand on the subject determines the role they will play in their children’s lives pertaining to the use or non-use of alcohol. Alcohol: What’s a Parent to Believe? is designed to help eliminate the perplexity and help parents think teenage drinking through by providing important and often overlooked information on the subject. Biddulph covers a broad scope of issues related to alcohol use and adolescents. Included are discussions of the developmental phases faced by teens and how drug use interferes with those developmental tasks. He delves into the disease concept of addiction with emphasis on alcohol, adolescents, intervention, treatment, recovery, and prevention. He also talks about the social factors that complicate perspectives. This book is jam packed with useful, honest statistics and perspectives regarding alcohol use and adolescents.

This course is based on the book, Alcohol: What’s a Parent to Believe? created by Stephen G. Biddulph
