Motivational Interviewing (MI) is “a collaborative conversation style for strengthening a person’s own commitment to change” (Miller & Rollnick, 2013) and is recognized as an evidence-based practice. Providers who are trained in MI learn how to effectively communicate with others to both evoke wisdom and share their own expertise effectively. Participants of this virtual workshop will learn the methods to engage, focus, evoke, and plan in an MI session. Furthermore, attendees will learn about the fundamentals of MI practice: understanding ambivalence, practicing with MI spirit, reflective listening, and learning the core MI skills of recognizing, evoking, and responding to a person’s “change talk”. Role plays, videos, and participant small group practice will be incorporated to help understand concepts.
This training is for community behavioral health providers, CYFD staff, and other stakeholders who work with children, youth and families
