Event description

Description

Substance Abuse & Motivational Interviewing

Schools will soon be required to screen all students for Substance Abuse issues, using the SBIRT (Screening, Brief Intervention, Refer to Treatment) model. While implementation of SBIRT includes an extensive training specific to that program, school staff would like a more thorough understanding of substance abuse among youth, and how to effectively address this issue. . This in-service will help nurses and other school staff understand:

  • The neurochemical process leading to addiction
  • The specific attributes of adolescent brains which make them more vulnerable to illicit substances
  • The principles and process of motivational interviewing as a means of opening dialogue and encouraging people towards healthy changes in their lives.

Who should attend?

School nurses, counselors, and teachers from schools which are enrolled with the McLean School Nurse Liaison Project. Please note you must use your school email to register in order to be eligible for free admission.

If your school or district is not enrolled, contact the organizer for enrollment information. You may go ahead and register for this event while the enrollment process is proceeding. Your school must complete enrollment prior to the event for you to attend for free.

If you do not work for a school, you may still attend as a paying attendee. If you have any questions, please contact the organizer prior to registering.

If you are staff from the hosting school/district, you do not need to register to attend.
