Motivational interviewing (MI) is a person-centered, guiding method of communication to elicit and strengthen motivation for change. MI is an evidence-based practice, with hundreds of clinical trials demonstrating its efficacy across a broad range of populations and target behaviors.
This 2-day workshop is an intensive introduction to Motivational Interviewing (MI). It will provide participants with an overview of the theory, principles, and skills of MI. Participants will be guided through a sequence of experiential exercises to explore and shape communication practices and begin the process of increasing proficiency in MI. Learning activities will include: demonstrations, video examples, role plays, case studies, small group exercises, and significant participant practice with feedback.
