  1. What are the benefits of prevention in dealing with the drug problem? How could Bermuda’s current treatment and prevention programmes be improved or changed to reflect the current drug problem?
  2. What role can a family play in early prevention, intervention, medium and long-term recovery, and how is this role best facilitated?
  3. What are the key factors that contribute to alcohol and drug use in our Bermuda community, and what are the consequences to families and the community?
  4. What are the essential practices and qualities for professionals in this field that enable a client’s successful treatment and transformation, as well as promote the well-being and self-care of the professional?
  5. Mental health practitioners in Bermuda’s small community are confronted with ethical dilemmas on a daily basis with regard to confidentiality, dual relationships, and boundary issues.
