Details

There are two parts to this assessment.

 Part A: Observe and participate in motivational interviewing scenario

 In Week 4 of class (Workshop B), all students will observe demonstrators conduct a ‘real- time’ substance-use interview, where the interviewer will practice motivational interviewing techniques.

 You will then have the opportunity to rotate through the roles of nurse, client and observer to practice and enhance YOUR interview technique, being mindful of the following:

1.  The interviewer’s initial contact with the person experiencing a substance-use disorder (the ‘interviewee’)

2.  The level of rapport and respect the interviewer shows to the interviewee

3.  The interviewer’s assessment of the interviewee’s readiness to change

4.  The interviewer’s identification of impact of substance use on the interviewee’s health and lifestyle

5.  The interviewer’s level of overall engagement with the interviewee

 Part B: Written reflect on class activity

You will need to write a 700 word reflection on your experience in the workshop. You should include in your reflection:

•       How did the overall experience make you feel about the interview process with a person experiencing a substance use disorder and their readiness to change?

•       Which elements of the interview process did you find challenging and/or confronting?

•       How will taking part in these interview techniques impact on your development

of therapeutic relationships in the future?

 The Driscoll (2007) model of reflection (What? So What? Now What?) will be used to guide your reflection.
