CORRADI-WEBSTER, Clarissa M. et al. Qualification of family health program professionals in brief diagnosis and intervention strategies for problematic alcohol use. SMAD, Rev. Eletrônica Saúde Mental Álcool Drog. (Ed. port.) [online]. 2005, vol.1, n.1, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1806-6976.

With a view to preventing problematic alcohol use, the WHO developed brief intervention strategies (BDIS), disseminated in Brazil, since 2002, by PAI-PAD/WHO of the FMRP-USP. This study aimed to evaluate the benefits of BDIS training with the use of focal groups for FHP teams. The group profile reflected the distribution observed during training (60% agents, 85% women, and 51% adults under 35). The identified benefits were related to the cognitive and behavior change objectives: questioning of stereotypes; attention to systematic research and alcohol dependence seen as a disease. The professionals identified breaking stereotypes and understanding drinking patterns as training benefits, which favored the implementation of the BDIS
