Advancing Skills in MI--2 day Intensive Workshop

This intensive and highly interactive 2-day workshop will help you advance your own skills in Motivational Interviewing (MI) and provide ideas for you and your agency to establish an effective and sustainable community of practice for on-going skill development.

This workshop is intended for health care professionals, behavioral health and primary care providers, child welfare workers, educators, and criminal justice professionals who work with individuals on achieving their change goals. Key administrators and supervisors will also find significant value in this workshop, for promoting and sustaining MI skills in their milieu.

As a result of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Form reflective statements that move conversations toward change
  • Evaluate brief conversations and provide MI-consistent feedback
  • Identify the benefits of an ongoing community of practice
  • Explore options within one’s organization for sustaining MI skills
