Preparing the Workforce to Implement SBIRT through Training, Technical Assistance, and Evaluation

Online Simulation Training Programs

Many health professionals report having little time, training, tools, and treatment resources to conduct screening and brief intervention for adolescents’ use of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs. These online simulation training programs are designed with those barriers in mind.

Produced in partnership with Kognito, SBI with Adolescents and SBI with Adolescents: Comorbid Substance Use and Mental Health are two state-of-the-art online simulation training programs designed to prepare health professionals to screen adolescents and young adults for substance use and mental health concerns, conduct brief interventions using evidence-based principles of Motivational Interviewing and, when necessary, refer patients to further support.
