Brief Alcohol Intervention Training Project

BAIT deliveryThe Brief Alcohol Intervention Training Project, or BAIT, is a student-led initiative aiming to teach peer educators to provide alcohol assessments, feedback and advice to their peers. 


The Training

During the 4 hour BAIT Training course, you will learn how to conduct an individual face-to-face brief alcohol intervention using the Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT) and motivational interviewing principals. This will give you the skills to support others to set goals for changing their drinking. 

Training sessions are delivered by UWA students who have extensive experience delivering interventions to their peers through the project. These students complete the BAIT Train-the-Trainer Pathway to develop the skills to facilitate the training to the next cohort of volunteers. 

Training sessions are conducted twice a year.


Supporting students to reduce risky drinking

Once you have completed the training, you will be invited to join the Fit for Study Peer Education Program to deliver interventions at events on campus and at the residential colleges.

The BAIT Project has been developed in partnership between the Health Promotion Unit and School of Psychology. Since its inception in 2011, over 1,000 students have received feedback on their drinking from trained student educators.
