The Brief Interventions Masterclass offers an interactive, evidence-based opportunity to build knowledge and skills to identify the most effective response for meeting consumers at their stage of change. Brief Interventions are effective and low-cost interventions with potentially long-lasting outcomes for health behaviour change. The session will embed the best practice tools, resources and strategies as well as the invaluable reflection and discussion that face2face training with peers offers. This training is suitable for housing and homelessness professionals, frontline staff, leaders and managers.

This face-to-face training will be facilitated by Drug Education Network (DEN) Educator, Dave Reynolds.


Participants’ comments from our online session Meeting People at Their Stage of Change:

“It was a great presentation overall. More training in Brief Interventions Master Class would be great. Also, less time on stats and more time spent on Meeting People at their stage of change would be good.”

“Keep the training coming when available please, it is helpful and very grateful for the invite.”

“The brief intervention training would be great if this could be offered by Shelter Tas in the future :).”

“Great presentation overall, 4hr Master Class would be fantastic.”
