Portland, OR USA Introductory

Motivational Interviewing 100 Workshop is aimed at providers with limited to no exposure to MI. Participants should include all types of psychologists, as well as providers from public health, counselors, LMFT’s, psychiatrists, NP’s, dentists, PT’s, ND’s, substance-abuse counselors, nutritionists, diabetes educators, and graduate students from any of these or collateral fields. Motivational Interviewing 100 Workshop [12 hours CE total] will combine a didactic overview of MI, practice of basic MI skills in dyads, triads, and small or large groups. Participants will also engage in small groups to discuss MI topics and consider how to understand and apply skills. MI 100 provides participants 1] the opportunity to learn MI basics [e.g. OARS], 2] the MI Conceptual Framework overview and 3] materials/exercises to determine how MI might translate to their workplace, and 4] opportunities to continue their MI learning process. MI 100 is consistent with principles and practices elucidated in Miller & Rollnick’s Motivational Interviewing, 3rd edition and more recent works. MI 100 Workshop/Course Learning Goals and Objectives
