PDC58964 - Alcohol and Other Drugs: Motivational Interviewing as a Brief Intervention

Course Details

Course Summary

Health professionals are commonly trained to help people who are at least in the preparation stage, already wanting and intending to make a change in relation to their alcohol and/or other drugs use. Many who seek treatment, however, are still ambivalent about changing their behaviour. Motivational interviewing is useful in facilitating forward stage movement for people who are ambivalent towards change by enhancing the delivery of brief interventions that are underpinned by FRAMES (Feedback of personal risks or impairment; Responsibility; Advice; Menu of options; Empathy and Self-efficacy) or similar frameworks. This online Short Course will explore the spirit and method of motivational interviewing.

The fee for this short course will be $250.00.
