SBIRT Module 2:Screening
with Tracy McPherson, PhD
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. This training will provide an overview of valid, brief screening tools for substance use and discuss how to determine the recommended level of intervention based on level of risk. Participants will learn how to introduce screening to adolescents and how to relate screening score results to level of risk and appropriate level of intervention. This training will review the CRAFFT+N 2.1, S2BI, and the APA Emerging Measures for use with adolescents, providing instructions and scoring for each.
Along with cutting-edge, evidence-based education, you will receive sample scripts and role plays to gain strategies to use right away with adolescents in many settings. This 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.
