SBIRT Motivational Interviewing Program Comments

All comments that are written on the program's post-training surveys:

  • I was taking this to determine if is will be useful for AODA treatment providers, because it is written for a primary care audience, but I can wholeheartedly say that AODA treatment providers will also benefit greatly from this training! -Guida Brown, Kenosha, WI (3/20/12)
  • I was happy to see the section on Adaptions for Primary care. It is often thought that Motivational Interviewing would take too much time in a Primary Care setting but with the methods learned in this section it seems very achievable. -D. Fraser. MD, GA (1/15/12)
