Structured interview training

A structured interview is an opportunity to clarify potential problems and identify suitable interventions such as counselling or further referral, or in some cases, signposting to information, advice or training.

This page details our structured interview training.


Our structured interview training course is for occupational health (OH) professionals, working within policing, to help guide them through the process to properly assess a person’s need for support and treatment.

Enhanced structured interview training is also available to occupational health professionals who wish to develop a more in-depth knowledge of the model.
