San Francisco, CA USA Advanced

Motivational Interviewing (MI), first described by William Miller (1983), and later elaborated in the classic book—Motivational Interviewing: Preparing People for Change (1991, 2002, 2014)—offers a practical, evidence-based approach for supporting clients in making and sustaining healthy behavior changes. Originally developed in the drug and alcohol field, over 300 clinical trials demonstrate the efficacy of MI across a range of populations, target behaviors, and medical conditions.  In particular, MI has been shown to be especially effective in brief clinical encounters and for individuals not ready or unsure about change.  This advanced workshop is designed for individuals who have completed introductory training in MI, and have experience using this method in an applied setting.  Participants will be guided through a sequence of learning activities to move from basic competence to more advanced clinical skillfulness in their own areas of work. Learning activities will include: real-life demonstrations, videotape examples, “real-plays”, case studies, small group exercises, and significant participant practice with feedback.
