Does it work?
There are over 1500 publications in peer -reviewed literature citing the use of a motivational approach for a wide range of behavior changes; 250 clinical trials and several meta-analyses.
What you’ll experience…
You will be introduced to concepts and fundamental skills involved in using Motivational Interviewing (MI) in your practice setting. Through lecture, videos, and role-plays, participants will have the opportunity to demonstrate and practice the course content.
Take Level I for an in-depth introduction to the practice of Motivational Interviewing.
Continue to Level II to deepen your knowledge and skills through practice and feedback.
This course has been constructed based on the research for optimization of practitioner knowledge and skill acquisition. In addition to the classroom practice experience, including audio recording practice sessions with a peer at each training, Level II course participants will have an opportunity to submit an audio-recording of their work with their clients/patients. Each participant will receive individualized feedback (MITI 4.2.1 coded) highlighting areas for improvement and current strengths.
NOTE: There is no additional charge to take advantage of this opportunity for feedback on your work using Motivational Interviewing with your real-world clients.
“There is no other way to assure fidelity to the model than through either audio recordings or direct observation. While participants are often reluctant to submit audio-recordings of their work, all resoundingly report that it’s helpful, not painful and moves their practice towards Motivational interviewing proficiency quickly.” Laura Saunders, MSSW, Instructor
Participants completing both Level I and Level II, who complete two digital recordings with peers and who take advantage of the opportunity to submit a recording of their work with clients for review, will be awarded a Certificate of Completion: Motivational Interviewing Level I & II - Advanced Practice
