Teen Intervene Implementation Training
Teen Intervene is a substance abuse prevention program that helps youth identify the reasons they have chosen to use alcohol or other drugs, examine the effects of substance abuse in their lives, and learn to make healthier choices. Program methodology includes stages of change theory, motivational interviewing techniques, and cognitive-behavioral therapy. Teen Intervene Implementation Training prepares professionals to conduct the program and teaches them how to:
- Understand the role of intervention in the treatment continuum for adolescents suspected of drug abuse
- Conduct brief interventions for drug-abusing adolescents
- Motivate youth to change their behaviors, while taking development into account
- Identify how stages of change theory can be implemented into a treatment regimen
Teen Intervene Implementation Training is open to substance abuse counselors, case managers, psychologists, vocational counselors, teachers, social workers, family therapists, and faith-based program counselors.
