San Francisco, CA Coding/Coaching MICA

Motivational Interviewing Competency Assessment (MICA) Coding and Coaching Workshop

April 6 and 7, 2016 in San Francisco

Trainer: Ali Hall

Does the communication method of a practitioner demonstrate a level of competence representative of Motivational Interviewing (MI)? The Motivational Interviewing Competency Assessment (MICA) addresses this question in a way that upholds integrity to the intent of MI by drawing upon a variety of evidence-informed and evidence-based tools, theories, and practices. This fast-paced and interactive workshop will introduce participants to coding and coaching using the MICA. 

The MICA can be used to evaluate a sample of a practitioner’s clinical conversation to assess baseline competence in MI from a quality assurance perspective. In addition, the MICA can be used to provide a quality improvement process for practitioners who want to move from a competent use of MI to a more proficient application of MI intentions and skills. The MICA provides helping professionals with easily digestible, structured, and specific feedback to shape and enhance their efforts to use MI with their clients.
