Description

Turning Point (RTO 6948) has been contracted by the Department of Health (DH Victoria) to provide competency training and assessment opportunities to the Victorian AOD workforce.

This training is targeted at new employees currently in the AOD sector and has been contextualised for the AOD sector.  In developing and delivering this skill set, Turning Point has worked with YSAS and SHARC, experts in understanding young people and their alcohol and drug use.  Trainers with relevant experience within the Youth AOD Sector and Lived Experience in the Victorian AOD sector are involved in the delivery of these competencies.

Units of Competency: 

CHCAOD001 Work in an alcohol and other drug context
This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to establish and work within the current context, philosophy and values of the AOD sector and applies to workers who come into contact with clients affected by alcohol and other drugs.

CHCAOD004 Assess needs of clients with alcohol and other drugs issues

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to prepare for and conduct assessments of AOD clients to determine eligibility, service requirements and referral needs.  This includes knowledge of factors affecting assessment for a range of different client groups including different genders, youth, older people, mandated and voluntary clients, Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people and those from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.

This unit applies to people involved in the assessment of clients with AOD issues using established organisation or jurisdictional AOD assessment tools.

CHCAOD009 Develop and review individual alcohol and other drugs treatment plans

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to work collaboratively with clients to establish treatment goals and to develop and evaluate individual treatment plans to meet those goals.

The purpose of the training is to enable participants to develop treatment plans with, and for, clients with AOD issues on the basis of an existing assessment and within established organisation guidelines.

CHCAOD006 Provide interventions for people with alcohol and other drugs issues

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to confirm, conduct and monitor evidence-based intervention strategies to address alcohol and other drugs issues. This unit includes applying standard processes and procedures to effectively manage tasks and contingencies required in the context of the work role.

The purpose of the training is to enable participants to develop the theoretical knowledge and practical skills required to prepare clients for interventions and deliver those interventions under supervision, within the scope of an established individual treatment plan.
