Professor Jane Barlow and Sukhdev Sembi share parents’ experiences of taking part in our Parents Under Pressure™ programme to support families affected by substance misuse
This is the third blog in a series about Parents Under Pressure™, our service to support families where parents have a drug or alcohol problem. In our earlier blogs we introduced the programme, explained how we carried out a randomised control trial (RCT) to evaluate its effectiveness and shared some of what we learnt from the process.
As part of the RCT our researchers talked to the parents who took part in Parents Under Pressure™ to get an understanding of how it helped them, what they liked about it, and what they didn’t like. Here we’re sharing what parents told us about their experiences of being involved in the programme and the impact it had on their parenting skills.
