Talking Point seminar series

Posted on: Monday, 24 January 2011

The Talking Point alcohol & drug issues seminar series has kicked off for 2011.

A diverse range of speakers will discuss a range of issues, with academics, professionals and the general public welcome to attend.

Among this year's highlights is a visit from Uncle Jack Charles. Uncle Jack is a noted actor, musician, and storyteller, who is also a reformed addict and former member of the Turning Point program.

Other speakers this year include Professor Louisa Degenhardt from the Burnet Institute on the contribution of cannabis to psychosis; and Turning Point research fellow Michael Livingston, on the liberalisation of liquor licensing in Victoria and implications for alcohol-related harm.

The seminars are held in the training room at Turning Point. Bookings are essential.
