Motivational Interviewing: A 2-day Intensive (in-person)

This in-person training will be held February 7-8, 2024 from 8:30-4:30pm at the Holiday Inn, Sierra Ballroom in Auburn. Both days are required for credit.

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 2-day introduction to Motivational Interviewing 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 training is FREE and open to the public. BBS CEUs will be available. 

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!
