The Brief Negotiated Interview is an evidence-based approach to conducting a person-centered conversation to incite behavior change. In this interactive training, the brief intervention focuses on reducing unhealthy levels of substance use or other at-risk behavior. The content is based on the brief intervention component of SBIRT (screening, brief intervention, and referral to treatment) which utilizes basic Motivational Interviewing (MI) core communication skills. This workshop will review dynamics of person centered interactions and offer practice activities to enhance provider competencies to effectively facilitate a brief intervention 'conversation' and support behavior change.

NOTE: This workshop is recommended for those who have gone through the SBIRT training who would like more time to practice the Brief Intervention communication skills.
