Advanced Motivational Interviewing: Continuing the Journey (in-person)
This in-person training will be held September 21-22, 2022. Both days are required for credit.
Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a state-of-the-art, evidence-based communication and counseling approach for guiding clients to make and sustain positive behavior changes in brief clinical encounters. While MI is recognized as a practical and common sense approach, becoming proficient in MI is an on-going learning process that requires significant training, practice, and feedback/supervision. This intensive 2-day “continuing the journey” workshop is designed for individuals who have completed an introductory training in MI. Participants will be guided through a sequence of learning activities to move from basic competence to advanced clinical skillfulness. Learning activities include real-life demonstrations, videotape examples, “real-plays,” small group exercises, and significant participant practice with feedback.
This Advanced MI training is intended for participants who have completed the introductory course and have experience using Motivational Interviewing in an applied setting.
Registration will be available available in Placer Learns 6-8 weeks prior to the training start date.
