Playtalk

Parenting is difficult - even more so if alcohol and drugs are involved.

PlayTalk is a program designed to strengthen the child/adult relationship where alcohol/drug misuse has impacted on the family.

PlayTalk aims to:

  • Explore ways to better communicate and relate to your child
  • Explore parenting in a supportive and non-judgemental environment
  • Strengthen bonds through creative and interactive play
  • Encourage expression of feelings
  • Raise awareness of the impact of substance misuse on the family
  • Improve self esteem

PlayTalk is suitable for parents and primary caregivers with children.

All Holyoake programs are based on a harm minimisation model.
