As part of the Relations Study on parental substance use, we will be having conversations with service commissioners, policy makers, international collaborators, and service user groups about their personal and professional experiences related to substance use. Discussions will highlight the emerging issues and challenges related to parental substance use within the context of COVID-19. This work was supported by the Economic and Social Research Council [Grant Number: ES/S015809/1]. Please direct inquiries to Dr Landon Kuester firstname.lastname@example.org
In this episode, Dr. Landon Kuester sits down with Prof. Miriam Boeri, Associate Professor of Sociology at Bentley University (USA). Miriam is a world-leading ethnographer who has carried out a wealth of research into women who use drugs in American suburbs. She also offers her ideas on how social research might be adapted in the context of COVID-19.
Check out two of Miriam’s books on the topics discussed:
Women on Ice: Methamphetamine Use Among Suburban Women
Inside Ethnography: Researchers Reflect on the Challenges of Reaching Hidden Populations
** New episode in the pipeline** Dr. Jan Flaherty and Dr. Polly Radcliffe at King's College London will sit down with Mary Kelly, Early Help Team Manager, and Bethan Gibbs, Specialist Parental Substance Misuse Social Worker, next week on Relations Radio.
