Counselors, marriage and family therapists, psychologists and social workers. This course is appropriate for all levels of knowledge.
Identify that alcohol use is a problem with adolescents and young adults.
Acknowledge that young adults not in a 4 year college program are under represented in research, in spite of their increased risk for substance abuse.
Extrapolate that MI is effective in this population, percentage of change talk is not a predictive tool for binge drinking, cannabis use and treatment engagement, and NF should not be used unless there is a certain percentage of change talk, as it increased substance use in some patients.
