Public Lecture at UWE on Friday 11 February 2005

The UK has a massive problem of binge drinking among teenagers. Levels of illicit drug use and tobacco smoking also cause enormous concern. Is there anything that parents can do to reduce the chances that their children will damage themselves by using legal or illegal drugs? Do parents have any impact on such risks?

Professor Rutger Engels, a well know expert of addiction will be presenting the findings of his new research on parenting and adolescent substance use at UWE on 11 February 2005. This lecture is open to the public and admission is free of charge. Professor Engels is based at the Radboud University of Nijmegan in the Netherlands.

His talk will be introduced by Martin Plant, Professor of Addiction Studies at the University of the West of England.

The lecture will take place at Room 1B22, Glenside Campus, University of the West of England, Blackberry Hill, Bristol BS16 1DD on Friday 11 February 2005 from 12.30 to 14.00 hrs.
