SBIRT IN PRIVATE PRACTICE: SCREENING, BRIEF INTERVENTION, REFERRAL TO TREATMENT FOR ADDICTIONS
SBIRT is an evidence-based approach that can be used in session to screen people who may have a substance use disorder and apply a brief negotiated interview to build motivation for change and link to appropriate services. No matter your therapeutic orientation, SBIRT is an immediately useful practice to call on when you think substance use may be causing problems in your client's life. This continuing education opportunity is part of the ADDICTION TRAINING INITIATIVE, a project of SCA member Lara Okoloko, LICSW. The Addiction Training Initiative provides learning opportunities for licensed therapists to build skill and confidence in treating substance use disorders and the impact to couples and families. $135 early bird before June 1, $115 for SCA members before June 1 - email for discount code. Scholarships available for those who practice in South Snohomish County. About the trainer: David Jefferson, MSW, CDP is a Research Associate with Northwest ATTC and has worked in the field of Behavioral Health since 1989 and is a member of the Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers (MINT).

PRIVATE PRACTICE MENTORSHIP AND SUPPORT
Running a private practice requires that we be entrepreneurs as well as therapists, but many of us could use support and guidance with the business end of our practices. If you are in the process of starting or building your private practice and are looking for help and support, consider joining this new group offered at no cost in the Pioneer Square neighborhood. My goal is to provide the forum for people to share ideas, get feedback on their materials, brainstorm about marketing and networking, learn about online advertising, develop supportive relationships with colleagues and have fun. While I will offer what I have learned in building my successful practice, most of the material will come from the discussion that arises among us. The group will remain open to new members as space allows.
DATE Every other Monday, 8:00am - 10:00 am
LOCATION 108 South Jackson Street, Suite 200
