Workshops

An Introduction to Working with Older People in the Addiction Sector

Matua Raki will be running some workshops on An Introduction to Working with Older People in the Addiction Sector in April 2012. These workshops are for addiction practitioners who want to know more about working with the older people who appear to be accessing addiction services in greater numbers as our population ages. These workshops will attract a different audience to the Kina Trust Alcohol and Older People workshop in the Hawkes’ Bay.

The workshops will cover:
 • Values, attitudes and stigma associated with older age
 • Engagement and communication
 • AOD use and older adults
 • Screening, assessment and intervention
 • Loss and grief associated with aging

The workshops will be facilitated by Suzy Morrison and participants will earn DAPAANZ continuing education points.

The workshops will be held in three venues around the country.
