New Topic on working with families added to NCETA’s online training for frontline workers

March 2018

More than 11,000 workers across Australia have registered for NCETA’s extremely popular free online Ice: Training for Frontline Workers.

A new customised topic 5.10 Working with families for workers who are providing health and human services to people with crystal methamphetamine related issues and their families is being added to the resource.

There are a variety of roles involved in supporting families and they include working with:

  • Family members with the primary aim of motivating someone with problematic crystal methamphetamine use to seek or engage in treatment
  • All family members and supporting the person using the drug to gain greater understanding of their problems and to enhance outcomes
  • Individual family members to support their own needs.

This new Topic provides workers with practical strategies, resources and guidance and will be available mid-March 2018.

The addition of the new Topic means that there are now 30 Topics across 7 Modules and NCETA will add more new Topics.

Ice: Training for Frontline Workers is available to all frontline workers, supervisors and managers working in AOD, mental health, allied health, paramedics, welfare, education and law enforcement and a range of other sectors.
