Motivational Interviewing (MI) is one of the most heavily researched interventions in the fields of addiction, behavioral health, and medicine. Study after study has reliably demonstrated that implementing this practice with proficiency and consistency will improve outcomes for consumers of behavioral healthcare. MI is an approach that attempts to move an individual away from a state of indecision or uncertainty and towards finding the motivation to making positive decisions and accomplishing established goals. MI is a directional, consumer-centered style of interacting with the goal of eliciting behavior change by helping individuals explore and resolve ambivalence. Rather than acting in an antagonistic or combative way, the helper engages with the consumer to explore his/her feelings, including ambivalence about changing, and helps clients find their own motivations. This workshop provides participants with an overview of the research and theoretical base for the model. Participants will also practice MI strategies and skills in small groups throughout the day. A working camera and microphone is required to register for this event. (12 CEUs)
