Motivational Interviewing provides a “tool box” of techniques and strategies which will help you to be more effective in working with clients who bring a wide range of challenges. This one-day advanced Motivational Interviewing Training is the next step for teams who are serious about an evidence-based implementation of Motivational Interviewing skills. The development and maintenance of MI skills is a challenge for front-line workers. Participating in the workshops is a great start but ongoing feedback and mentoring are needed in order for most workers to use MI skillfully. This workshop can help enhance both supervisor MI skills and the quality and nature of the mentoring process. It’s a win-win for clients and agency staff alike.

This advanced MI training is only for those who have already taken the Motivational Interviewing Basic Two-Day training seriesThe training builds on the two-day MI Skills Training and teaches supervisors and professionals who are passionate about MI how to keep the practice of MI alive within their teams. If you have not undergone the MI Basic Series, please register for that course instead of this one; we conduct MI Basic regularly.

Participants will leave with an understanding of:
  • the research-based building-blocks of a successful MI implementation
  • MI coaching skills
  • how to facilitate MI practice sessions
Participants will also receive a manual with tailored MI exercises to build and sustain their team’s MI skills.
