Using Cultural Elements and Brief Intervention to Reduce Substance Use in Latinx Communities - Webinar

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 with at risk use of alcohol and other substances impacting their health and on a trajectory of substance use disorder.  This interactive 90-minute presentation will review the integration of cultural elements and inclusivity as critical to creating a safe and affirming environment which is conducive to engagement and facilitation of a substance use screen. The content will also inform how taking a few minutes to conduct a person centered brief intervention with persons from Latinx communities can help motivate reduction of substance use.
