Motivational Interviewing

Did your project stop dead in its tracks? Is your grants team stuck in the mud? Is your client indecisive, or maybe even ambivalent? As grant professionals, we often find ourselves stuck in the middle of this  madness. Motivational Interviewing is an evidence-based treatment often used in a clinical setting to help clients explore ambivalence and boost motivation and commitment for change. Come learn how to propel your clients and your work forward by applying the Motivational Interviewing framework and skills to grants. By the end of this training, participants will understand the guiding principles and skills of Motivational Interviewing, how to apply it to the grant process, and ultimately get unstuck!   

GPC Credits: This training has been approved for one point towards the GPC credential covered under AGS accepted trainings.
