Facilitator-Led Online Intermediate

Dr. Kate Watson, President and Founder of The Advocacy Academy hosts workshops tailored to the needs of many professionals including, but not limited to those who come from:

  • Healthcare/ Fitness
  • Social Work/ Social Services
  • Psychology
  • Victim/ Survivor Advocacy
  • Criminal Justice
  • Education
  • Leadership/ Management


Intermediate Motivational Interviewing training 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 intermediate level:

  • Ambivalence
  • Change Talk and Sustain Talk
  • Righting Reflex
  • Spirit of MI
  • OARS


During this workshop, participants will learn how the concepts listed above fit into the “Four Processes” 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 concept of resistance.



By the end of the webinar, participants will be able to:

  1. Evoke change talk
  2. List 7 types of change talk
  3. Define discord
  4. Demonstrate how to navigate a conversation through the four processes: engaging, focusing, evoking, and planning.
