Mission and vision

The mission of the project is to prevent and reduce harm inflicted on children affected by parental alcohol problems. The website should serve as a useful source of knowledge and information for professionals working with the target group.

Objectives

Resulting from this first project was the English website www.encare.info which provides the visitor with comprehensive information and resources regarding the topic ?Children Affected by alcohol problems within the Family? as well as with a toolkit for the development of national websites concerning this topic. The website www.encare.info was used as a template for the German website www.encare.de in 2006.
The project ENCARE I ended with the 1. ENCARE symposium ?Coping with parental drinking?/?Coming to terms with parental alcohol problems? at the Seminaris Kongresspark Bad Honnef in May 2004 and was attended by various participants from Germany and abroad. The English presentations of this symposium can be downloaded here.

Another result yielded by ENCARE I will be a European ENCARE manual written in English language. It is going to provide the reader with numerous articles by international experts concerning the topic Children Affected by Risky Environments within the Family. This manual will be released by Prof. Richard Velleman and Lorna Templeton (Mental Health Research and Development Unit, University of Bath and Avon & Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust), prospectively in 2007.
