Description

Counsellors and therapists across a range of contexts encounter people who are under pressure to change. This can range from mandated clients from settings, such as child protection and criminal justice to pressure from family and employers for a person to change. The past few decades have seen a growth in programs and initiatives aimed at enforcing treatment for alcohol and other drug, mental health and offending concerns, particularly within legal and child-protection contexts. Working effectively with clients under pressure to change requires a particular set of knowledge, attitudes and skills in order to support a person to make sustained changes.

The aim of this one-day workshop is to provide participants with an opportunity to consider some of ethical issues and evidence-based approaches for working with people under pressure. The workshop will provide opportunities for participants to gain skills for engaging and supporting people who are mandated to change.

Participants will each be provided with a resource book for reference during and following the training. There will be opportunities for participants to practice and reflect on skills throughout the workshop.
