Brief Interventions and Brief Therapies for Substance Abuse: (TIP 34, Executive Summary and Recommendations; Chapter 1 - Introduction to Brief Interventions and Therapies)

About the Course:

Executive Summary and Recommendations: Brief Interventions and Brief Therapies for Substance Abuse (TIP 34) explains how the general purpose of this document is to link research to practice by providing counselors and therapists in the substance abuse treatment field with up-to-date information on the usefulness of these innovative and shorter forms of treatment for selected subpopulations of people with substance abuse disorders and those at risk of developing them.

Introduction to Brief Interventions and Therapies (Chapter 1): Brief Interventions and Brief Therapies for Substance Abuse (TIP 34) describes brief interventions as those practices that aim to investigate a potential problem and motivate an individual to begin to do something about his substance abuse, either by natural, client directed means or by seeking additional substance abuse treatment; while brief therapy is a systematic, focused process that relies on assessment, client engagement, and rapid implementation of change strategies.
