Free NAADAC Webinar
A Live, Interactive Webinar
Wednesday, August 18, 2021 @ 3:00-4:30pm ET (2CT/1MT/12PT)
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.
