Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) (Two-part videoconference via Zoom)

SBIRT (Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment) is an evidence-based practice that uses a preventive public health approach to identify and intervene with persons whose pattern of use put them at risk for, or are experiencing, substance-related health and psychosocial problems. SBIRT can also be useful in identifying those with a high likelihood for a substance use disorder. As an effective intervention, SBIRT helps to reduce harmful levels of substance use in health and behavioral health settings.  

This interactive (role plays, videos, large group activities) six-hour, two-part webinar (three-hour virtual sessions) training will provide an extensive review of validated substance use screening tools and will include skills practice focused on the brief intervention and a review of essential components of successful referrals to treatment.  

NOTE: This training will also identify points of contact and other opportunities to use a cultural lens in facilitating the SBIRT model without compromising the fidelity of the evidence-based practice.

 

Participants are required to attend both sessions in their entirety, turn on their video cameras, and actively participate in order to receive credit.
