Adolescent SBIRT

Helping social workers and nurses prevent adolescent substance use

Adolescent SBIRT Curriculum Instructor's Toolkit

As key members of an adolescent’s healthcare team, practitioners in the fields of nursing, social work and interprofessional care have an obligation to help prevent and reduce substance use with their young patients. Asking about substance use and discussing its impact can prevent many harmful effects to the adolescent’s developing brain and potential future.

The next generation of nursing, social work, and interprofessional education students need to learn the necessary skills to have these essential conversations. In response to this need, NORC in partnership with AACN, CSWE, and Kognito developed the Learner's Guide to Adolescent SBIRT to assist educators to seamlessly implement adolescent SBIRT training into your course(s) for FREE.


The Instructor's Toolkit contains the 300+ page Learner’s Guide to Adolescent SBIRT with companion slide decks and supplemental resources​. In addition, it includes examples of sample interactions between a practitioner and adolescent or young adult; dialogues and role plays that learners can use to practice the components of SBIRT; extensive appendix of materials including adolescent substance use screening tools, case studies, pocket cards, and performance feedback and evaluation tools for assessing quality and fidelity during role play and simulation exercises; suggested readings that align with each module of the Learner’s Guide; sample course syllabus; and sample measures that can used as part of a pretest/posttest survey.
