All trainees will learn about behavioral health smoking risks, common myths about smoking in behavioral health populations, basic information on how to use Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT)/Pharmacotherapy as well as basic cognitive-behavioral and motivational enhancement strategies, and discuss organizational and cultural factors impacting implementation.

There are two formats available
Single Session (Morning): Trainees are taught how to work with clients who smoke and are given a tailored, multi-component single session protocol (for use in individual or group sessions), as well as a brief intervention protocol, to help prepare behavioral health clients to quit using tobacco.

Multiple Session (Morning and Afternoon): In addition to the single session content, trainees are taught how to work with clients who smoke and are given a flexible and interactive multiple session smoking cessation group protocol, as well as a brief intervention protocol. This tailored, multi-component protocol will assist providers in conducting groups geared to help behavioral health clients to quit using tobacco.
