Motivational Interviewing Training: August 9th and 13th, 2021
Time & Location
About the Event
Motivational Interviewing (MI) is "a collaborative conversation style for strengthening a person's own commitment to change" (Miller & Rollnick, 2013) and is recognized as an evidence-based practice. Providers who are trained in MI learn how to effectively communicate with others to both evoke wisdom and share their own expertise effectively.
Participants of this workshop will learn the methods to engage, focus, evoke, and plan in an MI session. Furthermore, attendees will learn about the fundamentals of MI practice: understanding ambivalence, practicing with MI spirit, reflective listening, and learning the core MI skills of recognizing, evoking, and responding to a person’s “change talk”. Role plays, videos, and participant small group practice will be incorporated to help understand concepts.
