A Cultural Adaptation of Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment, (SBIRT) for Working with Hispanic and Latinx Communities – Part 1

August 3, 2022 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

This is part 1 of a 2-part webinar series.

Culturally and linguistically appropriate strategies are the means to ensure respectful and responsive services that enhance effective outcomes for racial, ethnic, and other underserved communities in behavioral health care. As such, being culturally informed when conducting evidence based (EB) practices such as Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment, (SBIRT) can help Hispanic and Latinx clients reduce their substance use.

SBIRT, is an evidence-based practice that helps practitioners identify and intervene with people whose pattern of substance use puts them at risk for or are experiencing substance-related health and other psychosocial problems. The question is: How do we facilitate SBIRT without compromising the fidelity of the model while practicing culturally responsive care?

This two session webinar series will review current landscape of substance use and benefits of culturally adapted evidence-based interventions that align with culturally and appropriate services standards, (CLAS). Further, the content will inform on how a culturally informed framework can help meet the needs and enhance quality care among Hispanic communities at risk.

Goal: Clinical and non-clinical professionals will review the dynamics of facilitating a culturally responsive SBIRT intervention for reducing substance use with Latinx communities and enhance their recovery and wellness process.
