Micro-counselling training involves a blended learning program consisting of three sessions - one self-directed e-Learning module and two interactive Zoom workshops. We recommend participants complete the e-Learning module in the week prior to the first workshop. This should take approximately one hour. The Zoom workshops build on the topics covered in the introductory e-Learning module and offer opportunities for further application and practice. Each workshop runs for 3 hours. The best learning outcomes will be achieved through completing these sessions in order.
These workshops explore the essential skills and strategies that go towards forming and maintaining a therapeutic engagement which enables growth, insight, cognitive organisation and change. Micro-counselling skills are transtheoretical by nature and can be applied in virtually all approaches and models of assessment and counselling in the alcohol and other drug field – either face-to-face or remote. An aim of these sessions if to also help workers to also consider the use of micro-counselling skills within the context of their own natural style.
