SBIRT in Schools Brief Intervention Practice Sessions

SBIRT Practice: Having a Supportive Brief Intervention Conversation

Join us for an interactive practice session, focused on having a supportive brief intervention conversation. We’ll review skills for brief interventions, practice conversations, and debrief key concepts. Because we will be using breakout rooms to practice conversation skills, we hope participants will be open to actively participating from an individual computer with audio and video capability.

Prior participation in the Intro to SBIRT in Schools training is required, as we’ll be practicing the skills reviewed in the introductory training.

Please register in advance for a practice session here:


We look forward to seeing you there! If registration is closed, please email masbirt@bmc.org to be added to a waitlist.
