MI III: Advancing Down The Path

After initial training in Motivational Interviewing (MI), practitioners are often left to wonder “how do I advance these skills in everyday practice?” Motivational Interviewing is a skill that improves with practice and feedback. To help facilitate moving towards greater proficiency in MI, we designed this innovative, one-day session to build understanding and skills. This interactive training will combine brief didactics, discussion, experiential activities, and self-reflection to encourage practitioner growth at all levels of experience.

David Rosengren (USA) and Joel Porter (Australia), internationally known trainers in MI, will take an exploratory approach to expand thinking and sharpen focus regarding MI concepts, skills and applications.

At the conclusion of this training, participants will:

  • Recognize their strengths, develop skills and confidence as a practitioner
  • Identify areas for continued development, include areas where they want to learn more
  • Have a plan for deliberately practicing MI skills.
  • Have completed an accurate assessment of their own MI skills and ability 
  • Identify how the integration of positive psychology elements enhances MI work
  • Articulate three reasons for considering self-efficacy in the treatment/intervention process
  • Describe one area that is interpersonally tricky for them as a practitioner and practice a method for addressing this area/issue
  • Identify three ideas from cognitive science that might have influence in their work with clients and one that resonates personally
  • Describe one new technique related to a deeper understanding of the four processes
  • Identify three strengths as a practitioner and one area for growth in MI
  • Produce a plan of action for the deliberate practice of MI skills
