The two-day advanced level workshop allows Motivational Interviewing (MI) trained substance use, criminal justice, health care, and social service practitioners to review and expand on the practice of MI care approaches toward effective therapeutic interventions. This two-day training will discuss this effective approach in the treatment of substance use, co-occurring, and other challenging symptoms, and provide participants with an opportunity to explore creative ways of integrating these approaches into an effective intervention. Participants will be offered a brief review and practice of, Motivational Interviewing spirit, some basic skills and structure with an overview of what’s important to the client. Participants will learn more about “change talk” and methods of communication to better elicit from clients. We will also consider how Motivational Interviewing overlaps with other models. This course will provide both useful theoretical models and hands-on opportunities to improve skills.
