The SBIRT Project is a three year federally funded grant from SAMHSA, to develop curricula and in-fuse it into the graduate social work program so that all MSW students will have the opportunity to learn this evidence-based intervention for at risk substance use.
First year students at UMB School of Social Work will receive SBIRT training in the Foundations course. Advanced standing and transfer students may take the 1 credit course which will be offered 3 times per year.
In addition, the School’s Field Instructors will be offered the opportunity to take a continuing edu-cation course in both the practice and supervision of the SBIRT intervention. This course will be offered several times per year in various locations. See SBIRT Training Opportunities tab for upcom-ing courses.
