On 21 January, 2014 the NSW State Government announced new restrictions on licensed premises to curb alcohol-related violence in Sydney. All the initiatives, except one, targeted two well-known entertainment areas of Sydney known as the Kings Cross and Sydney CBD Entertainment Precincts. The restrictions included 1.30am lockouts at pubs, bars and nightclubs; 3am cessation of alcohol service in venues; prohibition on new liquor licences; a ban on takeaway alcohol sales after 10pm; and a new risk-based licence fee. This seminar presents and discusses evidence bearing on the impact of the laws on trends in non-domestic assault in NSW, both in the immediate aftermath of the lockout laws and over the longer term.

SMART Recovery Be Smart Family and Supporters Training - Perth

Wednesday 27 February 2019
Venue to be confirmed, Perth

After finishing the SMART Recovery Facilitator Training, you can register for our Be SMART Family and Supporters Training.

Be SMART is intended to assist anyone who is affected by the addictive behaviour of someone close to them. Be SMART's sole aim is to improve the quality of life, coping skills, and support system of the family member, friend or supporter of the person with a problem behaviour. The aim of this program is not to mobilise participants to get the person they support into treatment, or to force the person with the problem behaviour to do anything at all. Instead, this program is about getting the supporter to Be SMART and regain control of their own lives.
