Description

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a practical, evidenced-based communication and counseling style for drawing out clients’ own motivation and commitment for positive change. 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. In particular, MI has been shown to be especially effective in brief conversations and for individuals not ready or unsure about change. This MI introductory workshop will provide participants an overview of the theory, principles, skills, and current advances in MI. Participants will be guided through a series of learning experiences and activities to initiate the on-going development of MI proficiency. If you appreciate learning that is enjoyable, experiential, engaging, practical, memorable, and guided by a variety of multi-modal/multi-sensory teaching approaches, this MI training is for you.
