Abstract

There is increasing awareness of the role that parents can have in the development of their children'sdrinking behaviour. The Centre for Health Research at the University of Brighton was funded byDrinkaware to understand how parental conversations can help reduce alcohol-harm amongst their 15-17 year old children. As such, this study aimed to understand what helps achieve effective conversationsby addressing the following two research questions: 1. What are the barriers and facilitators to parents in the UK having effective current/future harmprevention conversations about alcohol with their 15-17 year olds? 2. What types of information, strategies and/or tools would enable parents in the UK to have moreeffective and on-going conversations with their 15-17 year olds?
