SBI with Adolescents:

SBI with Adolescents is a conversation simulation designed to prepare health professionals to screen young

patients for substance use, conduct brief interventions using evidence-based principles of motivational interviewing,

and, when necessary, refer patients to further support. This simulation helps practitioners learn basic facts about

adolescent substance use, as well as techniques to screen patients and conduct brief interventions to drive positive

change in health behaviors. Take a Demo here. View the informational flyer here.
