Eventbrite - Group Skills Workshop for AOD Workers


In response to the increase in day group programs across Victoria for people facing difficulties with methamphetamines and other drugs, group skills have now become a vital part of the AOD workers skill set. This workshop has been developed for AOD workers wanting to provide group programs as part of a broader range of treatment responses for their clients.

This experiential two (2) day workshop, funded by the Department of Health and Human Services for those working in the public Alcohol and Drug sector, aims to provide participants with the theoretical knowledge and practical skills that will enable them to plan, manage and evaluate group work relevant to the AOD sector.

Dates: Wednesday 20th March and Thursday 21st March 2019
Full day workshop: 9.15 am – 4.00 pm
Morning Tea & light lunch including a vegetarian selection will be provided each day.
