Breaking the Habit in Behavioral Health (BH2):
New Hope for Clients Who Smoke
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.
