Slide 1

  • Helping clients to imagine a different future

  • Some useful questions:

    • 'How do you think things might be different for you once you turn 18?'

    • 'What would be the best possible result that you could imagine, if you were to make a change?'

    • 'If you made a change to your drug use, how would you like things to turn out?'

Slide 2

  • The goal is to facilitate movement to the next stage of change if the young person is ready

  • Ten-point scale is a useful tool to use with this technique
