Tobacco Treatment Counseling with Behavioral Health Patients – Can it be done? (1:00 - 2:00 PM EST)
People living with mental illness or substance use disorders (i.e. behavioral health conditions) have disproportionately higher rates of tobacco use than the general population. As a result, they also have higher rates of tobacco-related morbidity and mortality. To address these disparities, behavioral health providers must actively provide tobacco treatment and promote cessation among clients.

This one-hour webinar event will review the 5A's of tobacco treatment, an evidence-based treatment model for working with tobacco dependent clients. Specific behavioral treatment strategies will be discussed, including ways to motivate clients who may be hesitant to quit and key issues to address when providing counseling.

• Describe the impact of a behavioral health diagnosis on quitting smoking
• Summarize how clinicians can counsel behavioral health patients to quit tobacco successfully
• Provide a brief review of motivational interviewing (MI) techniques

• FREE CME/CEUs is available for eligible participants (MD/DO, PA, NP, nursing, social work, mental health counselors, addiction counselors) who join the LIVE webinar event on 3/04. Participants will receive instructions on how to claim credit via the post-webinar email. For questions regarding continuing education, please contact CME@iu.edu.
