Tackling Risky Behaviours
Participants have the opportunity to develop their skills to support people of all ages to make positive changes in relation to ‘risky’ behaviours ? alcohol, tobacco, problem gambling, marijuana and other drugs, nutrition and physical inactivity. The social determinants underlying Indigenous health and wellbeing are acknowledged throughout the training.
- to develop a deeper understanding of addiction and the barriers to change
- to introduce participants to introduce a wide range of tools and techniques that can be used to engage people in the process of change around risky behaviours, from brief interventions through to the development of comprehensive action plans with clients.
Although the training is intended for health and community practitioners, organisations may choose to invite other staff or community members for the first ½ day of training
