Examining the Evidence for Engagement and Cultural Adaptations -
Less than 10% of the adolescents in need of publically funded substance abuse treatment actually receive it. When available, adolescents typically receive substance abuse treatment in outpatient settings but the completion rates only range from 40-60%.In addition, racial and ethnic minority adolescents are less likely than their White counterparts to access and complete treatment. This webinar will provide participants with an overview of the current research on retention and engagement as well as the use of culturally adapted substance abuse treatments for racial and ethnic minority adolescents.In particular, participants will be provided ideas for implementing evidence-based strategies to increase retention and engagement of adolescents in treatment.Further, participants will obtain an understanding of when and how cultural adaptions to treatment may be necessary based on the current research evidence.
Level Two Intermediate MI is the second workshop of a three-part Motivational Interviewing (MI) training series that will take place in South Dakota. This workshop gives participants time to practice what they learned in the Level One Introduction session, then come back and receive additional training to enhance their skills and cover MI in more depth.
This two-day intermediate workshop builds upon the introductory workshop, with emphasis on skill enhancement and practice around the four processes of MI: engaging, focusing, evoking, and planning. Special attention is given to the evoking and planning processes of MI.
