Educational interventions are designed to increase knowledge about alcohol and in doing so to change an individual’s attitude and behaviour. Providing information about health risks and brief advice emphasising strategies to reduce consumption are the only interventions that have been recommended for both hazardous and harmful consumption of alcohol. Education may be usefully employed as part of more complex (brief) interventions; however in this section we shall evaluate the ‘stand alone’ application of this form of treatment.
