ATODA and Gugan Gulwan Youth Aboriginal Corporation in partnership are offering training on culturally secure practice-featuring Indigenous Risk Impact Screen (IRIS) and Brief Intervention (BI).
Damien Martin, Indigenous AOD Educator Coordinator, from the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander State-wide AOD Practice Support Unit (Queensland Department of Health) will be delivering the training.
This two-day workshop will provide participants with the skills to screen, assess and deliver these clients a brief intervention that is culturally secure. The workshops include training in the use of the IRIS screening instrument, a two-factor screen that assesses alcohol and other drugs and their associated mental health issues. With the use of the tool, assessment is systematically administered and risks can be addressed in a culturally appropriate and timely manner. The IRIS program is included in the Australian Department of Health’s Alcohol treatment guidelines for Indigenous Australians.
Invitations to attend this training are now open. There are a limited number of places.
