I’ve delivered the first of two days training for Focus and it evaluated really well. The second delivery, in Noosa on the 5th June, is now full. Maybe the high demand for the workshop will provide some momentum for Focus to fund some more!

Dates for my one day ‘working with substance users’ workshop have been set for Thursday 13th May and Saturday 5th June. The Thursday workshop will be held in Maroochydore and the Saturday workshop will be held in Noosa. The workshop targets generalist health and community workers interested in learning how to improve their work with clients who use substances. I will post registration details when I get them. I plan to apply for both APS and AASW professional development points.


New workshops!

Exciting news – I’ve been asked to deliver two one day workshops in the Sunshine Coast on working with substance users. It will be the same workshop delivered twice – once in the Maroochydore region and another time in the Noosa/Gympie region. It’s funded by Focus through the Sunshine Coast Division of GPs. We’re currently discussing dates and venues and I’m putting together the draft outline.
