Mental health professionals are increasing in the United States; however, research has shown that they continue to lack the tools to deliver age-appropriate services to older adults who suffer from substance use disorders. The proposed project is a short-term training program for mental health professionals employed by Pacific Clinics. The project aims to improve their overall direct service expertise by training clinicians on evidence-based treatments that include motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral therapy, Brief Intervention and Treatment for Elders (BRITE), and Prevention BINGO. This proposed training will be hosted at the Pacific Clinics Training Institute in Pasadena, California. This agency provides strength-based perspective to deliver quality, evidence-based behavioral and mental health care services to the community. The actual submission and/or funding of the grant was not required to successfully complete this project.
