We currently offer two skills-orientated short courses.
Attendees of these courses are given a certificate of attendance by Leeds Addiction Unit. If you are seeking more in-depth training you might wish to consider one of the assessed modules (accredited by University of Leeds) described in our prospectus available on the Training Department homepage.
All courses take place in The Coach House, Leeds Addiction Unit, 19 Springfield Mount, LEEDS, LS2 9NG. Tel: 0113 295 1330 Fax: 0113 295 1320 (but see the note below).
AIMS: To develop an in-depth understanding of motivational
change in relation to substance use. To develop ability to begin practising
motivational interviewing skills, techniques and strategies in relation
to behaviour change.
AIMS: To refresh existing skills and strengthen motivational interviewing practice. By the end of the course students will be able to apply the intervention to complex cases.
In addition, all our practice–based modules may be undertaken on a non–assessed basis. Students electing to study modules without assessment receive a certificate of attendance.
We also offer courses tailor–made for groups or organisational needs. All practice teaching is evidence based and addresses IAPT guidance.
