Brief Intervention for Adolescents Part II: BNI Using MI and CBT Strategies
Certificate of Attendance:
One of the largest barriers to providing appropriate substance use services to adolescents is getting them to open up about their use and engage in conversation to reduce or eliminate it, if necessary. The Using SBIRT to Talk to Adolescents about Substance Use four-part webinar series introduces health professionals to the SBIRT model as a way to learn from adolescents about their substance use, talk about what might motivate them to make a decision to reduce or abstain (if needed), and execute a plan to do so.
This third webinar in series demonstrates how to deliver brief interventions based on the Brief Negotiated Interview Model using motivational interviewing (MI) and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) techniques to assist adolescents in behavioral change. This webinar includes lots of sample dialogues and will present evidence-based strategies that encourage the adolescent to increase their own internal motivation to change their substance use.
Along with cutting-edge, evidence-based education, the expert presenters will provide sample scripts and role plays so participants gain strategies to use right away with adolescents in many settings. This free education is ideal for anyone who wishes to gain an in-depth understanding of SBIRT and its use with adolescents, designed for both those who are new to SBIRT and for those who want more advanced training beyond an overview.
As a result of participating in this webinar, you will:
- Learn how to deliver an effective brief intervention based on the Brief Negotiated Interview Model informed by Motivational Interviewing (MI) strategies.
- Use cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) strategies to identify goals for reducing or eliminating substance use.
