Motivational Interviewing is a psychotherapeutic approach to helping clients create positive changes in their lives by enhancing client motivation and resolving ambivalence. Often cited as a key component of trauma informed care and cultural humility, MI has a strong evidence base for use with a variety of behavioral change goals among a variety of helping roles and in a variety of settings.

This workshop is designed to bring participants’ MI skills to the next level by building on the basics and introducing advanced content. This workshop is fast-paced and assumes that participants have basic knowledge of MI Spirit, MI Skills, and MI Processes. Heavy emphasis will be placed on applying and integrating concepts through group discussions, activities, and practice. Advanced MI skills will be introduced on day two, with a focus on learning through real plays, activities, and experimentation. Role plays will be audio recorded to offer participants individual coaching.
