Cost: Free

Registration: Required

This 4-session workshop (3hrs/week x 4 weeks) is designed to help participants develop an understanding of Motivational Interviewing (MI). Participants will delve into the spirit of MI, learning to embody it and differentiate between practices that are consistent with MI and those that are not. The training emphasizes the use of OARS - Open-ended questions, Affirmations, Reflections, and Summaries - and equips participants with the ability to respond effectively to discussions about change.

Participants will engage in discussions about listening with an uncluttered mind and learn to demonstrate the core skills of MI. They will discover methods to provide information and advice that align with the spirit of MI and practice the ask-tell-ask technique. The workshop also provides guidance on creating Brief Action Plans and comprehending the concept of 'resistance'.
