Event description

Description

The training will introduce counsellors and practitioners to brief interventions which have been shown to be effective in helping clients in addressing problems with substance misuse.

What will be covered?

The training will explore attitudes and stereotypes that effect service users and significant others in their lives, including therapists and substance misuse practitioners.

You will be introduced to solution focused, brief intervention, harm reduction, twelve step and motivational interviewing models and how to implement these interventions in your work.

The training will include facts and effects of alcohol and other drugs, including the progression of dependence and withdrawal. You will also be introduced to the Neurobiology of Attachment, Anxiety and Addiction using models of treatment by Gabor Maté and Jeffrey Schwartz.
