Training Overview Description

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Motivational Interviewing (MI) are both evidenced-based practices for the treatment of behavioral health challenges. MI works with ambivalence to help move people towards change.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy helps people challenge problematic thinking and learn coping skills to manage maladaptive behavior. These two approaches can complement each other when working with a broad range of people looking to make change in their lives. In this workshop, we will: examine reasons for and against the combination of MI and CBT; identify and discuss inherent conflicts between the models; and practice use of the skills of MI and CBT in combination when addressing people with substance use disorders.
