Waterville, ME USA Supervision & Coaching Including MIA-STEP

This two full day training will discuss effective methods of supervising workers and provides participants with an opportunity to explore creative ways of integrating effective interventions with workers in motivating them. The practice of supervision using motivational interviewing is a worker-centered directive method for enhancing the intrinsic motivation within the worker, by helping them to explore and resolve their own ambivalence.

The Motivational Interviewing Assessment: Supervisory Tools for Enhancing Proficiency (MIA:STEP) package is a collection of tools for mentoring counselors and other clinicians in the use of MI skills during clinical assessments. During the NIDA clinical trials research the MI assessment protocol improved both client attendance and retention during the first four weeks of outpatient care. The researchers also discovered that the development and maintenance of MI skills was a challenge for the counselors engaged in the study. Participating in workshop training was not sufficient preparation. On going feedback and mentoring were needed in order for most counselors to use MI skillfully. This package of products is meant to be used in the context of clinical supervision or mentoring. Use of these tools can help enhance both counselor MI skills and the quality and nature of the mentoring process. It’s a win-win for clients and agency staff alike.
