Course Description:
This course is based upon material published by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) part of the National Institute of Health (NIH) and is available on their website.
 
According to the Introduction:
With this Guide, the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) introduces a simple, quick, empirically derived tool for identifying youth at risk for alcohol-related problems. If you manage the health and well-being of children and adolescents ages 9–18 years, this Guide is for you. It has been produced in collaboration with the American Academy of Pediatrics, clinical researchers, and health practitioners such as yourself. NIAAA created this Guide to help you conduct fast, effective alcohol screens and interventions with your patients, even during brief, acute care visits. The tools, tips, and resources are designed to help you surmount common obstacles to youth alcohol screening in primary care. Typical barriers include insufficient time, unfamiliarity with screening tools, the need to triage competing problems, and uncertainty about how to manage a positive screen.
 
This course on alcohol screening and brief intervention for youth is valuable for chemical dependency professionals and substance abuse counselors as well as psychologists, nurses, social workers, professional counselors who work with adolescents and need continuing education. This course is appropriate for beginning, intermediate and advanced level practitioners who wish to develop their understanding of substance abuse in children and adolescents. It may also be useful for licensed clinicians who require clinical corses as part of their continuing education and are interested in learning more about substance abuse treatment.
