Brief Intervention: The ASSIST-linked brief intervention for hazardous and harmful substance use: manual for use in primary care (80 mins)
You will be reading this entire manual titled "Brief Intervention," therefore you may wish to download it (for your own personal use only). The first 3 sections review concepts that are similar to those covered in the ASSIST screening manual, so you do not need to spend a lot of time reviewing those sections. Read sections 4 - 6 that will provide you with new theories and skills for brief interventions. You need to thoroughly understand these sections before continuing on to read section 7. Read section 8 on high risk and injecting clients that will help you understand and apply what you have read in the mhGAP. Section 9 will provide you with case examples of brief interventions. Section 10 to 12 provide further techniques to deliver longer interventions as well as how to include the ASSIST-linked brief intervention in practice.
