Join us for a weekly 2-hour MI Intensive across 7 sessions. In a highly interactive, experiential-based learning format, attendees will develop and hone fundamental skills of Motivational Interviewing, a collaborative, person-centered therapeutic approach and communication style grounded in testable theory and transportable across disciplines and diverse populations.

The curriculum will begin by covering the relational aspect of MI including exhibiting collaboration, evocation, acceptance, and compassion and the technical skills of open-ended questions, affirmations, reflections, and summaries (OARS). The series will then sequentially move through the four processes of MI as an approach for guiding a client through the process of behavioral change and cover more advanced skill-based strategies.

This series is best suited for those looking to further hone their MI skills through experiential practice. For more details about the series, presenter bios, and CE requirements, please see the registration page.
