Alcohol Brief Interventions (ABIs)

  • Raise the issue of alcohol in a range of settings
  • Assess alcohol risk and giving relevant feedback
  • Identify and respond to client motivation changes
  • Select appropriate approaches to support positive change

The course is open to staff at all grades working in primary care, secondary care, social work and criminal justice settings who support individuals to address excessive alcohol consumption.
