Training: Motivational Interviewing

March 9, 2016 @ 9:00 am - March 10, 2016 @ 4:30 pm

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a client centered communication approach, which enhances intrinsic motivation for making behavior changes by exploring and resolving ambivalence.
MI has become an essential clinical skill in the treatment of a number of health conditions, and has been incorporated into the care of substance abuse problems, tobacco use, cardiac rehabilitation, medication compliance and general lifestyle changes.

This two day workshop will help participants learn and understand MI philosophy, principles and skills.  Participants will learn to apply MI in an interactive learning environment while discovering new perspectives on ways to interact with clients to enhance their confidence, motivation and commitment to change.

Presented by: Barbara Orr, MS Trainer/Consultant


Participants will understand the principles and techniques of MI. 

Participants will be able to identify at least two different types of clients where MI has shown to be effective.

Participants will practice MI skills and state how they can use these skills.
