Discussing Substance Use with College Students: Incorporating Brief Intervention Approaches into Conversations on Campus and Addressing Marijuana in a Changing Legal Climate 1 of 3
In this workshop, we will discuss the theory behind and reasons for a brief intervention approach, will provide training in and practice with specific motivational interviewing strategies, and will consider ways to incorporate these approaches into conversations already taking place with students across campus. Additionally, there is recent research on marijuana and the clear implications for college student health that we will review, including impacts on cognitive functioning, mental health, risk for addiction, and other unwanted effects. Along with lessons learned from a legal state, we will discuss these findings in the context of the brief intervention content from earlier in the day.
