Parent workshops

Effective alcohol education requires a whole school approach that includes parents and the wider school community. Alcohol education is an ongoing process during a child’s growth and development and a parent’s influence should not be underestimated. Our workshop for parents is offered nationwide and free of charge. Due to Covid-19, this workshop is currently facilitated virtually only.

This interactive workshop features:

  • the latest research about young people and alcohol in Ireland

  • risks of early alcohol use on a teenager’s development
  • strategies parents can use to start the conversation about alcohol

  • age appropriate advice for parents to continue the conversation

  • advice for parents on being role models, boundaries, consequences and active communication.

Each parent in attendance receives a copy of our Your Children and Alcohol and Young People, Alcohol and Mental Health booklets.

When booking a parent workshop, where possible and feasible we recommend that schools consider joining together with other schools in the local area to maximise attendance, community engagement and workshop participation.
