Screening for Adolescent Substance Use
December 7, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Adolescents are influenced by a variety of factors that can place them at a high risk for substance use, misuse, and substance use disorders. Consequently, there is a potential for obstructing healthy emotional, physical, and social development. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends universal screening in pediatric primary care, and many school settings are integrating substance use screening to capitalize on contact opportunities. This interactive webinar training will review validated screening tools for adolescents and rapport building approaches to conduct an effective substance use screening, utilizing components of SBIRT (Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment).
