Session 8 (2-Day): Introduction to Motivational Interviewing
Motivational Interviewing was developed with the understanding that the helping professional's style of engagement is responsible for eliciting either positive or negative outcomes. MI incorporates techniques and strategies that increase the probability of positive change. It is a directive, client-centered approach designed to sustain healthy behavioral change assisting individuals in exploring and resolving ambivalence. There are now more than 200 clinical trials in MI offering support in a wide range of populations for a wide variety of target behaviors.
This workshop will provide participants with a strong understanding of the spirit of MI and a core foundation of the basic skills. It is appropriate for all helping professionals who are working with people to make and sustain healthy behavioral changes. This workshop is appropriate for those with a minimal or a basic understanding of MI.
