AFINet is a free-to-join Network, providing a platform which:

  • brings together researchers, policy-makers and practitioners;
  • promotes the well-being of family members, friends and colleagues who are affected by or concerned about another person’s problems with or addiction to alcohol, drugs or gambling; and
  • develops research, policy and practice in the field.

The AFINet Webinars, which have been monthly and on a Tuesday since October 2020, will now take place on alternate months: hence February, April, June, August, October, and December, and will move between Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday, so people with regular commitments on one of those days will still be able to attend on the others. The February Webinar is outlined below; Webinars for later in the year will be added at least two months in advance.

All Webinars are recorded and those recordings are made available a few days later on the AFINet website <https://www.afinetwork.info/webinar-series/recent-webinars> The list of past Webinars is below, beneath the programme for future ones.

Participation in each webinar is free, but to join, you MUST register beforehand. For each Webinar that you are interested in, please register in the few days before it starts, via webropol.com/s/afinetwebinar. Below the programme you can find a video recording of each Webinar that has been presented so far, along with the PowerPoint slides for that Webinar. As we are a small charity, if you can donate a small amount for each webinar, this would be really appreciated. We suggest 25Euro or £20. Paypal takes about 5% of the payment and banks can take up to 20% so Paypal is preferable.

Payment Details - You can request an invoice - gillvelleman@gmail.com

You can either pay through the website through Paypal http://afinetwork.info/about-afinet/make-a-donation or pay by BACS or web transfer.

Future Webinars

"From the start of 2023, AFINet Webinars will take place on alternate months: hence February, April, June, August, October, and December, and will no longer always be on a Tuesday – they will move between Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday, so people with regular commitments on one of those days will still be able to attend on the others.”

Date: Thursday 16th February 2023, 14:00 UK time (15:00 am Sweden time)
Title: : CRAFT + Parent Training, delivered on-line: an RCT
Presenters: Dr Anders Hammarberg and Ola Siljeholm, Karolinska Institutet, Sweden
Description: This webinar will report on an RCT of an on-line delivered CRAFT+Parent Training as compared with an active control group receiving written psychoeducational material. Results showed that CRAFT+Parent Training did not lead to better outcomes on any of children’s mental health, parental self-efficacy, CSO mental health and co-parent alcohol consumption and level of dependence, although CSOs in both groups reported a significant reduction in co-parent alcohol consumption and severity of alcohol dependence and showed significant improvements in parental self-efficacy for how to handle effects of co-parent alcohol consumption. The implications of these results will be discussed, both for future research and for the development of effective interventions.
