*There are two formats available for the above trainings:
Single Session: Trainees are taught how to work with clients who smoke and are given a tailored, multi-component single session protocol (for use in individual or group sessions), as well as a brief intervention protocol, to help prepare behavioral health clients to quit using tobacco.
Training Length: 3 hrs
Multiple Session: After successful completion of the single session training, trainees can also learn how to work with clients who smoke and are given a flexible and interactive multiple session smoking cessation group protocol, as well as a brief intervention protocol. This tailored, multi-component protocol will assist providers in conducting groups geared to help behavioral health clients to quit using tobacco.
