|Alcohol Consumption Alcohol Abuse||Behavioral: SBIRT Training & Support Tool Other: Waitlist Control||Not Applicable|
In Phase 2, the investigators propose to develop the SBIRT Training & Support Tool with two components: (1) online SBIRT Training for call-center and face-to-face practitioners conducting alcohol SBIRT and (2) SBIRT Support Tool with mobile/web interactive alcohol screening tools and brief intervention protocols to facilitate use of SBIRT by practitioners. The SBIRT Training component will provide practitioners with the skills, knowledge, motivation, and self-efficacy to: (a) screen their clients for unhealthy alcohol use with validated screening tools; (b) provide brief, motivational interviewing-informed intervention; and (c) make appropriate referrals. The training program will incorporate the Phase 1 content and expand the curriculum to include the use of additional validated alcohol screening tools. Content for alcohol SBIRT will be derived from NIAAA evidence-based materials.
The SBIRT Support Tool will provide a mobile/web interface for practitioners to use interactive screening and brief intervention forms with (a) prompts for validated questions in the screening or brief intervention; (b) motivational interviewing-informed dialogue suggestions; (c) online resources (i.e., standard drink list; importance, confidence rulers); and (d) alcohol education and referral information. The practitioner will use the SBIRT Support Tool to (a) screen clients for alcohol use with interactive validated screening tools; (b) provide brief intervention for individuals based on their screening score; and (c) provide referral to treatment for individuals based on their screening score.

Experimental: SBIRT Training & Support Tool
The SBIRT Training & Support Tool has two components, both of which will be evaluated: (1) online SBIRT Training for EAP and behavioral health practitioners conducting alcohol SBIRT with their adult clients and (2) mobile/web interactive alcohol screening tools and brief intervention protocols to facilitate use of SBIRT by practitioners.
Behavioral: SBIRT Training & Support Tool
Program to train EAP/behavioral health practitioners in conducting alcohol SBIRT
Subjects randomized to the control condition will be placed on a wait-list and given access to the SBIRT Training & Support Tool after 3 months and completion of the 3-month follow-up assessment.
Other: Waitlist Control
3-month wait-list and then provided access to the SBIRT training program
- SBIRT implementation [ Time Frame: 3 months ]Situation judgment tests (SJT) will assess trainee's responses to real-life situations and behaviors. The SJT will consist of 9 brief (20-30 seconds) audio-based vignettes of motivational interviewing and alcohol SBIRT in typical clinical and counseling situations. For each of the 9 SJTs, trainees will identify MI/SBIRT-compliant responses.
- Perceived Competence [ Time Frame: 3 months ]13-item scale assessing trainee's perceived competence (self-efficacy) for using motivational interviewing and alcohol SBIRT skills
- Knowledge [ Time Frame: 3 months ]23-item scale assessing trainee's knowledge of motivational interviewing and alcohol SBIRT concepts
- Attitudes [ Time Frame: 3 months ]10-item scale assessing trainee's attitudes about conducting motivational interviewing and alcohol SBIRT with clients
