Mastering SBIRT

Mastering SBIRT Workshop is a newly developed 3 hour long skills training to increase confidence and skills in responding to the CRAFFT-II screening results using Motivational Interviewing (MI) techniques. The training includes discussion and practice of the REACT model for healthy reinforcement of healthy decisions (negative CRAFFT screening) and the Brief Negotiated Interview model to be used for discussion with those students who screen positive for substance use. Discussion about referral, consent and confidentiality as well as a closer look about how to talk to teens about substances will be included.

NOTE: This training DOES NOT replace SBIRT in Schools Training requirement for DESE licensure for school nurses or the training requirement for school health personnel involved in SBIRT screening.
