      Supporting Change Resistant and Dependent Drinkers

      At any one time the majority of problem drinkers are not engaged in services, and of those who do engage approximately 50% will quickly drop out. Specialist alcohol services have traditionally worked with people who are motivated to change. However, research evidence suggests that those who drop out are likely to be among the more vulnerable individuals. This course will help participants to work more effectively with change resistant drinkers. Who is this course for? Frontline workers and managers who work in the homelessness and supported housing sector, including those who work in alcohol and non-alcohol specialist settings, who encounter people with alcohol issues in their service. What will you learn? By the end of this course participants will be able to: Identify change resistant clients Understand the rationale for attempting to intervene with this client group Understand in greater detail the physical and psychological effects of alcohol Be able to use the “assessing barriers to change” framework Understand the range of techniques available for use, including risk management, nutrition and harm reduction approaches Be able to use the 12 questions tool Understand the legal support available, including the anti-social framework Formulate a realistic intervention plan for a treatment resistant drinker.
