The WISC Integrated Step Course


This three or six month full time programme has been created for use in treatment or rehab settings, inpatient or out. Several models have been brought together to form a framework that can be delivered in group settings and 1 to 1’s.


Firstly the programme studies the practices and principles of the 12 Step model, this forms a major part of the course and is the backbone that the course is structured around.


Secondly, it includes tools such as node link mapping as seen in the BTEI and ITEP ‘Routes to Recovery’. It is important to stress that node link mapping, as used in ‘Routes to Recovery’ is not a new theoretical approach - it uses the same cognitive behavioural principles as motivational interviewing and relapse prevention. It also includes psychosocial models considering such areas as ‘cycles of change’ and ‘thinking patterns’ etc this includes focus on after care and relapse prevention.


Thirdly all session are based around the processes of learning as defined by Blooms Taxonomy and William Glasser.


Each Step has six levels taking the client from an introduction to the Step through to initiating peer support.
