Motivational Interviewing

Thursday, September 28, 2023

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is an evidence-based, person-centered, collaborative counseling or intervention style used to obtain behavioral changes by addressing any ambivalence the client may have (Miller & Rollnick, 2012). It can also assist individuals with setting and reaching their goals. MI includes collaboration, acceptance, compassion, and evocation. A provider who is using the “spirit of MI” partners with the client, accepts them for who and where they are, does this in a compassionate and caring manner, and helps to evoke the client’s own reasons for why and how to change.

6.0 CEUs for counselors, social workers, nurses.

Upon completion of this course, you will gain additional skills and knowledge to apply Motivational Interviewing techniques when providing client care.

Payment is due 48 hours prior to the class date. Sorry - no refunds for cancellations within 48 hours of class date.
