Asheville, NC USA Introductory/Intermediate

TMotivational Interviewing: Basics & Beyondhis is optional 2 or 3 day training depending on your learning goals. 
In the 2-day training, we will cover the basics of MI. This is a great introductory exposure to Motivational Interviewing. In the 3-day training, we will cover the basics, and there will be a third day of intensive experiential practice of MI. We will spend the third day understanding what MI competency is through the MITI coding system, as participants gain comfort and confidence in MI skills through practice.

If you'd like "A Taste of MI," the 2-day training is a good option for you. If you are ready to dive into a deeper practice of MI, the 3-day is for you!
