The aim of this module is to equip learners to be able to respond to older adults who are at increased risk of developing alcohol issues and potential harm caused by alcohol in later life.
By the end of the course, participants will be able to:
- Consider values and attitudes relating to supporting over 50s and their alcohol use
- Understand the cycle of change and how this is related to alcohol use and behaviour change
- Give age appropriate feedback using a ‘way of being’ learned from the counselling method called motivational interviewing which is termed the ‘Spirit of Motivational interviewing’
