Advanced Motivational Interviewing Training Series 2019: Creating Communities of Motivational Interviewing Practice

TRAINERS: Ali Hall, JD and Kristin Dempsey, EdD


Many organizations and individuals invest a great deal of time and energy into learning different evidence-based practices, such as Motivational Interviewing (MI). Creating and supporting a community of practice are among the key steps you can take to sustain and extend your investment. What does that look like? This brief, fast-paced and engaging workshop will introduce participants to a variety of strategies and tools to generate a plan that you can tailor to suit your setting. We will explore brief evaluation tools for supporting MI practice, generate ideas for ongoing skill practice, review available resources, and help you walk away with some clear ideas for moving yourself and your agency forward.
