Psychoeducational drug-specific DVD for motivation to change

Lack of motivation and dropping out of treatment are common in the initial phase of drug abuse treatment. The use of film as a psychoeducational preparation for the change can act as a motivation for accepting treatment.

About the project

This study examined a film that focuses on “presence” and acceptance of emotions in order to enhance perceived mastery and stimulate attempts to change.

The project includes a qualitative evaluation of the film used in a low-threshold context, with graduate student Elisabeth Franzen from SERAF and qualitative testing in an outpatient clinic with psychology student Ingerid Bjelland.
