Possibilities

Overview

Practitioners tasked with carrying out brief interventions and motivational interviews can use this brief intervention kit to aid in their practice.

Possibilities is a set of cards to provide guidance and structure to brief interventions. The cards can assist in examining affirmations and offering reflection and summary in a structured and respectful manner.

The structure these cards provide helps users run through brief interventions using the ABC and 5A models. By pairing the Possibilities with the Drug Harm Cards, the worker and client can create a personalised session, helping build their relationship, examine client motivations, and formulate a package of assistance.
