Brief Intervention and Facilitation: Enhancing Skills and Increasing Efficacy (Closed Event)

Brief interventions are evidence-based, person-centered practices designed to incite innate behavior change. In this workshop, the brief intervention focuses on motivating individuals to reduce unhealthy levels of alcohol consumption or other substance use. Often, harmful patterns of use put persons at risk for substance-related health or psychosocial problems. Based on Motivational Interviewing (MI), this interactive, skills building workshop will review how MI strategies within the dialogue of a brief intervention can enhance (from beginner to intermediate) provider abilities to effectively facilitate a brief intervention and motivate behavior change.

NOTE: Content builds on conceptual knowledge of formal intervention models such as BNI (Brief Negotiated Interview) or SBIRT (Screening, Brief Intervention, Referral to Treatment) as examples.

This training meets approval for 1.5 renewal hours (CASAC, CPP, CPS) and 1.5 initial hours (CPP, CPS) through New York State’s Office of Addiction Services and Supports (NYS OASAS). Participants must attend the session in its entirety to receive a certificate of completion. All participants are required to turn on their video cameras and to actively participate in order to receive credit.
