Alcohol Awareness & Brief Interventions

This one-day course is designed to equip non-alcohol specialist workers with the skills to effectively deliver Identification and Brief Advice to promote the safer use of alcohol.

Prior knowledge is required.
You will need to have a good understanding of alcohol and its effects.

Most alcohol-related harm is caused by excessive drinkers whose consumption exceeds recommended drinking levels, but is not yet dependent think of your local town or city on a Friday or Saturday night. One way to reduce consumption levels and reduce harm in a community can be to offer brief interventions.

Brief interventions involve offering simple brief advice, usually by non-alcohol specialist in a general setting e.g. housing services/probation/jobcentre plus, and only take a few minutes to complete.

Offering opportunistic brief interventions in general settings can bring about positive change at both an individual and population level.

If you work with people who could benefit from simple brief interventions around their alcohol use then this is the course for you
