Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a very specific way of having a conversation about change and is used by different professionals in a variety of settings. This process discovers a person’s values and interests and is designed to decrease barriers and increase readiness to make a change, providing concrete, person-focused tools to help address ambivalence and engagement. This interactive training will help you learn how to bring awareness to individuals about the discrepancy between their current behavior and their future goals.

You will learn...

  • Active listening and its impact on behavior change
  • How our intent can influence the behavior change process
  • The 4 processes and mindset that guide MI conversations 
  • How discord impacts our relationships
  • How to effectively provide information and suggestions
  • How to use OARS (Open-ended questions, Affirming, Reflective listening, and Summarizing)
  • How to recogize sustain talk, change talk, and commitment language
