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. Generally recognized as a practical, common sense approach, becoming proficient in MI—however—is an on-going learning process requiring significant training, practice, and feedback/supervision. This intensive 2-day intermediate workshop is designed for individuals who have completed introductory training in MI, and have experience using this method in an applied setting. Participants will be guided through a sequence of learning activities to move from basic competence to intermediate clinical skillfulness, and provided an introduction to current advances in MI. Learning activities will include: real-life demonstrations, video examples, “real-plays”, case studies, small group exercises, and significant participant practice with feedback.
This advanced course is intended for participants who have completed the introductory course and have experience using MI in an applied setting.
