An interactive workshop hosted by VAADA, presented by Mentha Consulting

About this event

This FREE 90-minute interactive workshop will explore the intersections of Motivational Interviewing, COVID Vaccines and AOD Clients.

Seeking to build on existing knowledge of MI techniques, we will…

  • Provide a brief overview of initiatives available to support vaccine accessibility for clients
  • Explore using MI strategies for discussing COVID vaccinations with clients,
  • Use collaborative problem solving in small breakout groups to brainstorm new, innovative strategies and reflect on personal experiences and techniques

We hope you will join us for this valuable session. To ensure the session is interactive tickets will be limited. If demand is identified, further sessions will be announced.

If you have any questions, please contact Julia at
