Spirit of Motivational Interviewing: Stephen R. Andrew, LCSW, LADC, CCS, CGP 

Motivational Interviewing is a collaborative, goal-oriented style of communication with a particular attention to the language of change. It is designed to strengthen personal motivation for and commitment to a specific goal by eliciting and exploring the person's own reasons for change within an atmosphere of acceptance and compassion.

Join dynamic workshop leader Stephen Andrew as he gives an introduction to the evidence and practice-based clinical method of motivational interviewing (MI). After orientation to the underlying spirit and principles of MI, practical exercises help participants to strengthen empathy skills, recognize and elicit client change talk, and roll with resistance.
