Adolescent SBIRT Curriculum Testimonials
What Students Say...
"I hope all is well with you and I hope you are having a lovely summer. I had to send this email because I was too excited to wait until school started. I'm going to be interning with Dimondale Adolescent Care Facility for the summer helping out at a shelter for abused and homeless girls. During this process I had to take a test which reminded of the online simulation that you assigned to us. I passed with flying colors! I just wanted to say thank you for everything and all of your amazing classes."

"This form of learning was certainly different from what I am used to as far as high school/college learning and teaching goes. The 3D simulation was very interesting and actually made the 'SBIRT user' feel like he/she was actually in a professional setting dealing with a real live client. I didn't expect the simulation to actually have a moving simulation with 3D graphics, rather, I expected it to be 2D with chat bubbles above the heads talking. Also, the thoroughness of every detailed piece of information in this simulation was impressive to say the least."

What Faculty Say...
"Students liked the simulation and asked if they could revisit it to obtain more practice. Students stated it helped them decide which questions were effective and which were ineffective and helped them see how to use these skills to build rapport and support clients autonomy."
- Faculty, University of Nevada at Las Vegas
"Faculty have been very impressed with the students’ immediate use of SBIRT training. One student started using the techniques in her work and stated she was promoted due to her increased skills"
