Screening, Brief Intervention, Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) – six hours (Closed Event)

Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) uses a preventive public health approach to identify and intervene with persons whose patterns of use puts them at risk for, or are experiencing substance-related health problems, and/or helps identify persons with a high potential for substance use disorders. As an evidence-based practice, SBIRT is an essential intervention to integrate in various disciplines and behavioral health settings.

This interactive training will discuss validated tools used in SBIRT, how to provide a brief intervention using a person-centered motivational dialogue with skills practice, and successful facilitation of referrals to treatment, and collectively help incite motivation and commitment to change.

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