Micro-Counselling and Brief Interventions

This training is provided by Insight Training and Education:

In the counselling environment, a well-established therapeutic relationship provides the necessary foundation for delivering a wide range of treatment interventions that enhance treatment outcomes.

In the AOD counselling environment, brief interventions are often delivered opportunistically to raise a client’s awareness of some of the issues associated with their AOD use. A sound skill in the use of micro-counselling skills can build a strong therapeutic relationship that thereby facilitates clients’ optimal receipt of treatment for problematic AOD use.


Topics covered in this workshop will include:

• enhancing interpersonal communication by developing primary attending behaviours, verbal and non-verbal communication skills, therapeutic or empathic listening skills

• developing and maintaining a productive therapeutic relationship

• using kinesics and proxemics in brief intervention delivery

• recognising and overcoming barriers to effective communication

• using the FRAMES and FLAGS brief interventions models

• skills practise.
