BASICS Training in Virginia

There’s an exciting consortium of schools and universities in Virginia implementing the Brief Alcohol Screening and Intervention for College Students (BASICS) program. This program combines elements of Cognitive Behaviorally-based skills training and the communication style of Motivational Interviewing. I conducted a 1-day training on BASICS on March 14, 2014 in Charlottesville, Virginia. Thanks to VCU and UVA for cosponsoring this event! We left eager to implement BASICS to reduce drinking-related harm to young adults. Please download the Powerpoint presentation we used for the training if it can be helpful in your work!
