MITI 4.2.1 Coding & Coaching, Minnetonka, MN

Introductory Training for the Motivational Interviewing Treatment Integrity (MITI) Coding System 

This dynamic workshop will introduce participants to the Motivational Interviewing Treatment Integrity Coding System (MITI), version 4.2.1. Using extensive practice following introduction and discussion of the tool, along with pairs practice with participant audiotape samples, learners will become skilled in recognizing and assessing common elements of practitioner competence in Motivational Interviewing. 

Participants for this workshop should have experience in Motivational Interviewing and a desire to learn the MITI for supervisory, coaching, or research purposes. This course will include large group exercises and individual or small group coding practice. Participants will receive feedback on their coding to enhance speed and accuracy of learning and will learn how to continue improving their coding skills after the workshop.

This workshop will also provide instruction and practice in methods for utilizing the MITI to provide feedback and coach or supervise others in their MI practice.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  Participants for the workshop will prepare in advance, and bring an audio taped interview of a client session (or MI real-play) with them to the workshop.  This recording will be shared with only one other participant in pairs during coding/coaching practice. More information will be provided to training participants closer to the event.  

Upon completing this workshop, the participant will be able to:

  • Evaluate practitioners’ MI skills using verbal anchors for four critical dimensions of Motivational Interviewing: Cultivating Change Talk, Softening Sustain Talk, Partnership and Empathy.
  • Assign behavior codes for ten clinician behaviors integral to Motivational Interviewing.
  • Code self and other practitioners’ work to practice MITI coding skills.
  • Practice giving feedback in supervision/coaching using the MITI Coding Tool.

Training hours: 9:00 AM - 4:30 PM (We will end at 3:30 PM on Wednesday, July 27.)
