Advanced Online K. Watson

Advanced Motivational Interviewing is an intensive skill-building session. Participants are expected to arrive prepared to practice the skills that were learned in the introductory level training. If you are already comfortable with the following concepts, you are probably ready for the advanced level: Ambivalence, Change Talk and Sustain Talk, Righting Reflex, Spirit of MI, OARS skills. During this workshop, participants will learn how the concepts listed above fit into the “Four Tasks” model, which was introduced to Motivational Interviewing beginning in 2013 (Miller and Rollnick, 2013).  A lengthy amount of time is also dedicated to exploring (and reimagining) the traditional concept of resistance (more recently understood as discord). .
