This workshop is designed for persons who have completed an introductory training and have begun to utilize the model in their practice. This training will help participants to further develop MI skills and strategies beyond the basics in a supportive environment. Participants will hone their skills by participating in experiential exercises with other MI practitioners who will provide strength-based feedback. (12 CEUs)
