Use and Abuse: Understanding the Intersections between Childhood Abuse, Alcohol and Drug Use and Mental Health – Digital Download


Researchers from the Centre for Gender-Related Violence Studies (CGRVS) at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) and Adults Surviving Child Abuse (ASCA) (now Blue Knot Foundation) undertook a qualitative research project exploring the intersections of child abuse, adult trauma and alcohol and drugs from the perspective of both workers and clients. The research project aimed to shed new light on the use of alcohol and drugs by adult survivors and the challenges that this poses to professional practice in alcohol and drug services.
