The UW Center for the Study of Health and Risk Behaviors will offer training on Brief Alcohol Screening and Intervention for College Students (BASICS): Training and Implementation, with training by Drs. Jason R. Kilmer and Mary E. Larimer.
Brief Alcohol Screening and Intervention for College Students (BASICS) is an empirically supported brief intervention that utilizes personalized graphic feedback and motivational enhancement techniques in its delivery. In this one-day workshop, participants will receive knowledge and skills necessary to work with at-risk college drinkers including:
- Review and application of basic Motivational Interviewing strategies to conversations with college students
- Presentation of alcohol content relevant for BASICS
- Discussion and review of personalized graphic feedback for eliciting personally relevant reasons for changing alcohol use
- Consideration of possible “hooks” for students that could prompt contemplation of change
- Practice of techniques to elicit self-motivational statements (or “change talk”), which are statements that reflect concern or recognition of potential unwanted impacts.
