CLICK HERE TO REGISTER by June 10, 2019 - Each staff will need to register individually.
We have space for each participating health center to send up to 8 staff, so please check with your supervisors and register by June 10th in order to secure your space! This training is open to any staff who would benefit from learning the skills of SBIRT – including MAs, nurses, behavioral health staff, health educators and anyone that is having conversations with patients about changing behavior.
The focus will be on screening procedures to identify risk; key motivational interviewing concepts and principles that are tied to effective use of the FLO (Feedback; Listen and Understand; Options Explored) brief intervention; and referral to treatment for patients with more serious substance use-related problems. We have asked them to focus specifically on the BI/motivational interviewing portion, this training uses the FLO model for that portion.
