Participants will learn about FDA approved tobacco treatment medication with behavioral interventions and how to deploy them in behavioral health settings. Participants will engage with professional ethics and learn how they fit with tobacco use treatment, as well as trauma-informed tobacco use treatment and policies. Then, through experiential training methods, participants will develop policy planning and implementation skills as well as quality improvement skills to integrate tobacco treatment into the behavioral health system.
