The Brief Negotiated Interview is at the heart of a brief intervention and is an evidence-based approach to conducting a person-centered conversation to incite behavior change. In this interactive training, the brief intervention focuses on motivating individuals to reduce unhealthy levels of alcohol consumption or other substance use.  

Based on the brief intervention component of SBIRT (screening, brief intervention, and referral to treatment) which utilizes basic Motivational Interviewing (MI) core skills, this workshop will review and offer practice activities to enhance provider competencies to effectively facilitate a brief intervention and motivate behavior change. 

This training meets approval for two renewal hours (CASAC, CPP, CPS) and two initial hours (CPP, CPS) through New York State’s Office of Addiction Services and Supports (NYS OASAS). Participants must attend the ENTIRE session, turn on their video cameras, and actively participate in order to receive credit.
