The growing number of adolescents and young adults presenting for treatment of addiction poses many challenges. Most adolescents and transitional age youth do not voluntarily seek treatment, and are mandated by their parents, schools, criminal justice systems or child welfare agencies. Engaging youth and families remains challenging despite continuing advances in evidence-based treatment approaches. Solution-Focused Brief Therapy is now included in Substance Abuse Mental Health Service Administration’s National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (SAMHSA NREPP). This workshop will provide an overview of the fundamentals of the evidenced-based approach of Solution-Focused Brief Therapy. A special emphasis will be placed on how to use this approach to engage externally motivated youth and their families in substance abuse treatment. Participants will learn how solution building differs from problem solving, learn practical tools to engage clients building on theirstrengths and resources, and learn how to utilize a system’s perspective to enhance goal negotiation. The workshop is designed so participants will be able to immediately implement the practical skills learned, and will be taught using a combination of didactics, plenty of interactive practice exercises, video examples and case examples. **This program has been approved for 6.5 Social Work Continuing Education Credits, for the licensure period of October 1, 2016 -- September 30, 2018, in accordance with 258 CMR.
