Intermediate Motivational Interviewing

This intermediate course builds upon the information learned in the Basic mtotivational interviewing training. Attendees will review the OARS engagement skills that build a therapeutic relationship. The course then focuses on learning about the importance of change talk and practicing skills to elicit it in clients. A special focus will be on understanding what is commonly considered "resistance" and how to utilize Motivational Interviewing to respond to resistance.

Having attended the Basic Motivational Interviewing course is not a requirement, however, to gain the most benefit from the event an understanding of Basic Motivation Interviewing is reccommended.
