Coach Level 1 Certification will be awarded upon completion of the workshop. This certification will prepare you to do the following:

·  Reviewing work samples of MI

·  Coding work samples using the MITI

·  Generating a menu of examples for trainees based on feedback

·  Using coding feedback during supervision/coaching sessions

In this 20-hour class you will learn:

·  How to use the global ratings to evaluate the relational and technical elements of MI

·  How to identify specific behaviors that are desirable and discouraged in MI

·  Strategies for providing feedback from the MITI for self-evaluation and evaluation of other MI learners.

·  Methods for establishing, evaluating and maintaining reliability in MITI coding for your practice.

Target Audience  This workshop is appropriate for Novice coders (those who have no experience using the MITI) and those who are interested in using the MITI for evaluation of others, self-evaluation and continued development of your own MI skills.

Purpose of the Workshop

This workshop will focus on the newest revision of the Motivational Interviewing Treatment Integrity Code (MITI 4.2.1).  Participants will learn to evaluate segments of MI practice using both global measures and specific behavior counts.  The training will cover all aspects of the coding system with special attention given to using coding as a basis for providing feedback and coaching to others as well as facilitating self-evaluation and development of one’s own skills.


Denise Ernst, Ph.D., Psychologist and Motivational Interviewing Trainer and Consultant. She is part of the research team that developed the Motivational Interviewing Skill Code (MISC) and the Motivational Interviewing Treatment Integrity Coding system. (MITI). She is an adjunct professor at the Portland State School of Social Work. Dr. Ernst leads an international coding team that provides MI coding for the Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers, research and implementation efforts, and practitioner skill development.

Workshop Details

This workshop will take place online via zoom. 

There will be a total of 18 hours of live weekly class sessions with Dr. Ernst. The remaining 5 hours of class will be asynchronous (on your own time).  The asynchronous activities include watching pre-recorded lessons by Dr. Ernst each week and meeting with an assigned partner online to record an MI session during weeks 4-5.
