This training manual is the result of a joint effort made by the scientists and professionals who have participated in the European PHEPA project. Alcohol is a main health determinant throughout the world, and Primary Health Care (PHC) is in a pivotal position to prevent and minimize most of the harm done by alcohol. This manual aims to enhance the skills, knowledge, attitudes and motivation of PHC professionals facing the challenges posed by their patients who drink in a hazardous or harmful manner. Alcohol related problems are often under diagnosed in PHC settings, and risky drinking is usually forgotten. General Practitioners (GPs) tend to concentrate on the most severe and visible alcohol related problems, while most of the preventive activities that should be routinely done with hazardous and harmful drinkers are often forgotten. Based on this assumption, this manual tries to present alcohol problems as a continuum ranging from hazardous drinking to severe dependence. Even though alcohol dependence is addressed in Session 5, the manual gives priority to the identification and brief intervention techniques that have proven cost-effective in PHC settings. This training manual is one of the products of the PHEPA project (Primary Health care European Project on Alcohol) (http://www.phepa.net), which aims at the integration of health promotion interventions for hazardous and harmful alcohol consumption into primary health care professionals daily clinical work. Europe is presently going through an important integration process that tends to harmonization, and this includes drinking patterns. PHEPA contributes to the harmonization of responses to alcohol related problems, taking into account the differences that make country based customisation of the training package a necessity. Those differences relate not only to beverage type and drinking patterns, but also to the organization of PHC and specialized addiction units. Thus, we strongly recommend that every trainer adapts the core contents of this training package to individual training styles, the differing needs of course participants and to country specificities. The WHO Collaborative Project on Identification and Management of Alcohol-related Problems in Primary Health Care (http://www.whoalcohol-phaseiv.net) has inspired relevant parts of this manual. In the frame of that study, the dissemination of identification and brief interventions is seen as a slow and sometimes difficult iterative process. Because of this, the philosophy behind the manual is that it is a better approach to target modest achievable goals than to aim at dramatic changes. If as a result of the training, PHC professionals start to revise their traditional misconceptions about alcohol, the trainer should be satisfied.
