We hope you can join us for our next LIVE meeting, July 27th (Wednesday) from 10 AM to 12 Noon at 1900 Embarcadero Cove in The Brooklyn Basin Room (First Floor), Oakland. 

 

We will have special guests from The Counseling Student Association at San Francisco State University discuss the process of organizing the annual CSA Student Symposium.  This symposium is an excellent example of students actively participating in creating relevant and responsive educational opportunities while learning useful networking, organizing, and business skills.  We invite you and your colleagues to attend this important meeting. This presentation should be especially useful for programs looking for creative ways to engage students in exploring behavioral healthcare education and careers.

 

Following the presentation, we will have brief Collaborative updates including plans for 2016-17 programming.  We will spend the rest of our morning discussing changes in our Collaborative meeting structure that will provide more opportunities to problem solve and network with peers.

Final PLI Skills Training Workshop

Practicing Screening Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment AND Peer Leadership Institute Graduation!

SBIRT is an evidence based practice that allows for providers to invite discussion about substance use, and help facilitate further exploration of use, or consideration of treatment. In this workshop, PLI participants will be able to practice the skills learned in the SBIRT webinar 5/5/16.  Viewing the webinar prior to the workshop is highly recommended, but not required. 

Participants will be able to do the following:

·          Practice asking substance use screening questions while attending to the needs and concerns of the consumer/client.

·          Apply  Motivational Interviewing skills to conversations regarding substance use, and to make referrals to ongoing treatment.

·          Demonstrate ability to provide a “warm handoff” to another treatment program or provider.

·          State the roles of peer providers in the SBIRT process and how SBIRT fits into the peer provider’s individual scope of practice.

Followed by graduation… You did it!  Celebrate the accomplishments of the Peer Leadership Institute graduates at our PLI Graduation.  We’ll have time to reflect on the year, acknowledge our growth, and discuss our next steps. Join us for well-deserved recognition, treats and guest speakers!  Graduation is May 12th and 13th immediately after theSBIRT training. Please RSVP for your graduation certificate.
