Training Overview Description

We are pleased to offer a new virtual opportunity for training in YSBIRT! If you are an administrator or clinician who is new to Youth SBIRT or looking for a refresher, this three-hour training is just for you. Participants will learn:

  1. How SBIRT fits in the context of providing integrated and trauma informed systems of care.
  2. The use of evidence-based adolescent screening tools to identify levels of risk.
  3. The role of brief interventions to increase engagement, elicit behavior change and reduce counterproductive discussions.
  4. Referral to treatment best practices for facilitating access to specialized services for youth at higher risk.
