COA Week Live | International panel event

4pm GMT, Thursday 17th February, Facebook Live

Champions for children of alcoholics around the world will unite to talk about how aspects of culture inform their work. How do attitudes to alcohol and addiction differ? Where do our experiences align? And what can we learn from each other? 

What specific worries do we have for children of alcoholics, and children of addiction, in our individual communities? How has Covid made things worse? How can positive change be made? What can we learn from each other?

Although thousands of miles divide our panellists and their clients, we share a universal bond of having worked with these adverse childhood experiences.

Join us. Join in.

Jerry Moe: Former National Director of the Hazelden Betty Ford Children’s Program, USA
Dr Sheila Gilheany: CEO Alcohol Action, Ireland
