Brief Intervention
Brief Intervention is an approach that uses motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral therapy, and the stages of change model, to meet the needs of adolescents who use alcohol and/or other drugs.

Learning Objectives
• Examine the counselor’s attitudes and relationship with teens
• Learn to teach adolescents how to take a more active and reflective role in decisions about their behavior
• Identify strategies that would support an adolescent drive to make decisions they see as beneficial
• Increase knowledge about drug and alcohol, and tobacco use among teens
• Utilize motivational interviewing to empower rather than enforce
• Identify how Brief Intervention can be used as an alternative to suspension
