Brief Interventions for Cannabis Use Disorders: The Check-Up Model (webinar)


How do you engage with clients who are using marijuana heavily, but not interested in treatment? This webinar, presented by Denise Walker, PhD, of the University of Washington, focused on the Check-Up model of intervention, designed to attract voluntary participation from non-treatment-seeking marijuana users. The elements of the intervention were described, with a focus on Motivational Enhancement Therapy and topics of conversation that can be used to enhance motivation to change marijuana use.
