This training has been RESTRUCTURED to remote training on Zoom September 15th & 16th
Motivational Interviewing (MI) offers a practical, evidence-based approach for supporting clients in making and sustaining positive behavior changes. Originally developed in the drug and alcohol field, over 300 clinical trials demonstrate the efficacy of MI across a range of populations and target behaviors (Miller, W. & Rollnick, S.). In particular, MI has been shown to be especially effective in brief clinical encounters and for individuals not ready or unsure about change. This intensive 8-hour virtual/remote MI introductory workshop will provide participants an overview of the theory, principles, skills, and current advances of MI. Participants will be guided through a sequence of learning activities to explore and shape MI practice behavior, and to support the on-going process for developing proficiency in MI. Learning activities will include demonstrations, videotape examples, “real-plays,” case studies, small group exercises, and participant practice with feedback.
This 2-day intensive training is intended for a variety of different clinical professionals and non-clinical paraprofessionals, such as therapist, social workers, case managers, teachers, law enforcement, counselors, line staff and many more!
