Join ATDC’s Frontline in Focus for a 40 minute training session with Dave Reynolds from the Drug Education Network. Stages of Change: From theory into practice is based on DEN’s Brief Intervention Masterclass and will be interactive and accessible for workers of any level of AOD experience.
We will revisit the stages of change model and the theory underpinning it. This session will focus on the Contemplation stage and the processes that our clients undertake as they move into and through this stage. The training will move from the theory into a conversation about what works in practice to facilitate change for our clients.
