Harmful alcohol use, intimate partner violence and family conflict create a dysfunctional family environment which can have detrimental effects on children. Each of these behaviors can be deeply entrenched and difficult to change; this study looked at the potential of a family-based intervention to reduce these behaviors. The article describes the intervention and analysis for each of the outcome measures. Results indicate that family-based interventions offer an opportunity to build on family strengths and support long term well being for vulnerable children.
