Description

Intake and Assessment Workshops (New Model) 2017

Turning Point has been contracted by the Department of Health and Human Services to provide state wide training to the alcohol and drug sector.

This one day workshop will focus on the new Intake and Assessment process including the ‘refreshed documents’ with the aim of increasing the confidence and skills of clinicians through this transition. This workshop has been developed after consultation with the sector and is designed for clinicians interested to learn about the recent updates and to inform and support those new to the role of Intake and Assessment.

This interactive workshop is both practical and skills based and will cover the following key areas.

Intake: This session will focus on:

  • introducing the ‘refreshed’ intake document
  • supporting clinical judgment to inform assessment, decision making and referral
  • the role and types of brief interventions
  • bridging support to assist client engagement

Assessment: This session will focus on:

  • the revised Assessment document, highlighting changes and improvements
  • using the comprehensive assessment to ensure treatment needs are adequately assessed and recorded

Please note you must be a current AOD worker and your position is funded by the Department of Health and Human Services to register for this workshop.
