Mentored Activity: Risky alcohol use intervention

An action plan needs to be adjusted to the patient's state of change. You need to be familiar with the appropriate strategy to help a patient in each state of change and to apply them properly. 

Prepare a 250 - 750 words piece of writing that includes the following:

  1. Write a summary of the appropriate motivational strategies for each stage of change.
  2. Write an action plan for an imaginary patient in the pre-contemplation phase to guide him/her through all the stages of change, including recurrence.
  3. Submit and wait for your mentor's feedback.
