Description

PREREQUISITE - In order to register for this workshop, you must have attended a Motivational Interviewing Basics workshop in the past.

Motivational Interviewing is an evidence-based therapeutic technique designed to help people identify their readiness, willingness and ability to make meaningful change in their lives. We will talk about techniques to draw out people in order to find out their motivations and help them become empowered to make change to meet their own goals rather than trying to externally mandate change. Motivational interviewing can be added into other models to reduce attrition and increase the likelihood of participants’ success. During this training participants will strengthen and practice empathic counseling skills, understand and practice the directive aspects of MI, experience and practice an MI style of meeting resistance, and learn the fundamental client language cues (change talk and sustain talk) that allow continued feedback and learning in practice.
