Training Summary:
Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a conversation style used in helping professions to help clients identify their own intrinsic motivation for change. Over 300 clinical trials demonstrate the efficacy of MI across a wide range of populations, target behaviors, and medical conditions. This follow up training is a continuation of last year’s “Introduction to MI.” This “Day 2 of Motivational Interviewing” will allow attendees the opportunity to discuss how their MI practice has gone in the last year while reviewing, discussing, and experiencing how the concepts and technical skills of MI work in concert with each other to motivate change. Attendees will be encouraged to take advantage of the opportunity to practice and deepen their MI skillset in group and partner activities.
