About this course

The AMBIT Client Skills Workshops are for AMBIT-trained individuals or teams and provide evidence-based theory and practical skills for working with specific issues, in AMBIT-influenced ways. 

This workshop will equip participants with practical skills in working with people (of any age) who are using substances. It will cover evidence-based practices from Motivational Interviewing (MI) and how to deliver these within a mentalizing and AMBIT framework.  

Using case examples, participants will practise as a group MI and mentalizing skills applied to a substance use context. These skills can equally be used in other settings where motivation is a key to bring about change.   

This is a practice-focussed workshop focussed on the Client quadrant of the AMBIT approach. We will invite participants to share their experiences of practise and create a wiki-manual page of learning and reflection of the workshop that is open source for all and will act a resource to maintain "Learning at Work".      

This is a live online training, with trainers present throughout. The training consists of an engaging combination of live teaching, group discussion, skills practice, and interactive online activities.
