Description

Change is not always easy. Motivational interviewing (MI) is an evidence-based practice for how to have collaborative conversations that engage and support people in their own change process. MI can help you forge a more productive path to identify and inspire meaningful changes and foster higher rates of engagement and satisfaction for both you and your clients.



This half-day (4 hours) live session is ideal for busy individuals looking for introductory or refresher training. Whether you’re a clinician in a behavioral health setting, a supervisor trying to boost staff morale or a nurse helping patients manage diabetes, motivational interviewing (MI) training can help you create conversations that empower people to make meaningful changes.

Curriculum pace and flow is intentionally designed to maximize engagement and interaction in a virtual environment.
