Introductory/Refresher Virtual SBIRT Training

Sponsor: National Council for Mental Wellbeing

Settings like primary care, emergency departments, mental health and school-based health have implemented screening, brief intervention and referral to treatment (SBIRT), an integrated and comprehensive, evidence-based, early intervention program. Recognizing and managing substance use is often a missing link in the integration of mental health and medical care. SBIRT fills that gap by helping you identify, reduce and prevent risky or unhealthy alcohol and drug use. Build your skills today! Join us for our next SBIRT training on Mar. 6 at 2 p.m. ET. If you are an administrator or clinician who is new to SBIRT – or you’re looking for a refresher — this 3-hour training is perfect for you.

Participants will learn:

  1. How SBIRT fits in the context of health and providing whole-person, integrated and trauma informed systems of care.
  2. The use of evidence-based screening tools for adolescents and adults to identify risk levels of alcohol and drug use.
  3. The role of brief interventions to increase engagement, elicit behavior change and reduce counterproductive discussions.
  4. Referral and treatment best practices for managing and supporting people with substance use disorders.
