Micro-counselling skills are the essential communication building blocks required to develop therapeutic alliance with clients.  This workshop will explore these primary counselling concepts and skillsets, and therefore is suitable for anyone working in health and community service settings who provide support to people with AOD and/or mental health concerns.

NB: Micro-counselling Skills training involves a blended learning program consisting of the self-directed e-Learning module – Micro-counselling Skills (pre-requisite) - and a half-day interactive workshop. Participants are recommended to complete the e-Learning module in the week prior to their schedule workshop (approx. one hour). The best learning outcomes will be achieved through completing these sessions in order.

By the end of this workshop learners will be able to build on the topics covered in the introductory e-Learning module to:

  • Describe a core set of micro-counselling skills that can be incorporated into practice
  • Learn how to both identify and demonstrate core micro-counselling skills including active listening and OARS
  • Understand and avoid roadblocks to communication
  • Identify existing strengths in micro-counselling skills practice and consideration of areas for growth

Pre-requisite:  Micro-counselling eLearning.
