  • Brief interventions make developmental sense given that many drug-abusing youth are not “career” drug abusers and thus not very amenable to disease-oriented treatment approaches. Developmentally, young people are more likely to be receptive to self-guided, motivational-interviewing-based behavior change strategies, which are cornerstones of a brief intervention.

    Learner Objectives:
    At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:

    1) Identify the developmental issues that affect the motivation for youth to change
    2) Apply basic skills in motivational interviewing
    3) Describe brief intervention strategies for adolescents suspected of abusing drugs

    1 Documented NASP- and APA-approved CPD Credits/Hours   This session offers NASP-approved CPD.
    NASP maintains responsibility for the program.
