Alcohol-Related Brain Damage is increasingly being recognised as a treatable condition as opposed to a life-long, deteriorating condition. If individuals can be appropriately identified and obtain the correct treatment, it is possible that they can re-establish their lives and improve their long-term outcomes.
Because of this, a bespoke training programme was developed to increase awareness of ARBD. This programme is tailored for frontline care and support staff and is suitable for those with some or no experience of ARBD. This online training package is based on extensive research findings and expertise that has been amassed through consultations with clinicians, third sector providers, and service users, as well as with our expert external collaborators, Public Health Wales and Alcohol Change UK.
This is an online course that consists of two e-learning modules, videos and handbooks. This course takes around one hour and a half to complete and delegates receive a certificate upon completion.
The learning components are:
- What is Alcohol-Related Brain Damage
- Prevalence and characteristics
- Signs and Symptoms
- Assessment and Diagnosis
- Working with Clients

“This training was very clear and concise and it got a lot of information out in a much clearer way than the two day course I did to be honest.”
