Training Overview Description

This webinar is designed specifically for addiction professionals and will introduce promising, feasible approaches to implementing evidence-based substance use screening and brief intervention (SBIRT) methods in therapeutic settings for adolescents. The presenters will outline how to ask adolescents about their substance use and enhance internal motivation to change their behavior (if identified to be at risk) using motivational interviewing and cognitive-behavioral strategies. It will also discuss how to support clients in behavior change or treatment seeking goals by conducting follow-up and referrals. Participants will gain a better understanding SBIRT for adolescents, how it impacts the addiction professional, and how to use it in practice.

Learning Objectives

  • Participants will be able to screen adolescents for unhealthy substance use with brief, valid questionnaires such as the CRAFFT+N 2.1, S2BI, the NIDA Modified ASSIST Levels 1 and 2, BSTAD, PHQ-2/9A, and C-SSRS.
  • Participants will be able to deliver effective brief counseling informed by motivational interviewing and cognitive-behavioral techniques.
  • Participants will be able to link adolescents to medical or specialty addiction treatment services as needed, work with physicians and other specialists in ongoing care coordination, and provide follow-up and recovery supports to adolescent clients.
