The Central East ATTC and the Clinical Trials Network Mid-Atlantic Node are pleased to announce:

Motivational Interviewing
Webinar Series 

Join us for an enlightening webinar series on Motivational Interviewing (MI), a person-centered technique widely used by a broad range of health professionals for its powerful results in motivating people to make positive behavior changes.  This series of eight short presentations (only 30 minutes) will help MI practitioners become more proficient by learning some of the nuances of this complex counseling technique.  

MI developer Bill Miller, PhD, aptly described MI as “deceptively simple.”  In these webinars we will focus on some of the more familiar concepts such as using Open-Ended Questions and Reflections (OARS), as well as sophisticated MI tools and perspectives that enhance practitioners’ ability to help people plan for behavior change.

Each webinar will be hosted by expert MI trainer Christine Higgins of the Mid-Atlantic Node of the Clinical Trials Network (CTN).  Christine will highlight what work is accomplished by using each particular tool.  Based on her years of experience as an MI trainer in both beginner and advanced workshops, she will also shed light on common missteps that lead to a loss in fidelity and frustrate practitioners and clients alike. 

Webinars will also feature guest MI experts who will explain key concepts, clarify when and why to use a particular tool, and identify salient points that some MI trainings may overlook. 

A Q&A segment will give you the opportunity to request clarification or share insights of your own. 
These webinars will prove helpful to both the beginning and advanced practitioner. Participants can earn up to four CEHs.

Whether topics are familiar or new to you, you will strengthen your ability to use this remarkable style to help people change.
