Description

Early bird price is $235 by June 14th; $255 after June 14th.

Prerequisite: This is an intermediate level course. Previous coursework or continuing education in Motivational Interviewing that prepared the learner with the foundational theories in the Spirit of MI, Stages of Change, and an introduction to the OARS, and either client or peer practice with the techniques, is required.

Limited to 30 people. This intermediate level course is designed for students and practitioners who have some training in Motivational Interviewing (MI) and have applied basic skills with a client population. Building upon the Spirit of MI and understanding of ambivalence and stages of change, the course will explore ways of responding to challenging conversations and focusing conversations through agenda mapping. Using advanced moves with the basic strategies of Open Questions, Affirmations, Reflections, and Summaries, we will practice tipping the scales of sustain talk to the direction of change talk. Training activities will focus on the planning phase, giving advice in an MI-adherent style, and supporting clients for action steps toward their goals. Participants will also learn how to manage conflict and respond to upset and angry clients.

Learning Objectives:
1. Apply the OARS skills in a way that reduces client sustain talk and increases change talk;
2. Demonstrate skills for focusing a conversation about change and prioritizing among competing topics;
3. Give advice in an MI-consistent style;
4. Respond to relational discord and upset clients.

Research: Select current research on MI can be found at US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health http://bit.ly/2MJiR0k.
