Motivational Interviewing Groups: Moving Together Toward Change Motivational interviewing (MI) is an empathic, goal-oriented therapeutic approach that elicits change in health, mental health, and addictive behaviors.  Originally an alternative to addiction approaches that relied on an expert, authoritarian stance in counseling, MI has evolved into a mainstream, evidence-based, and highly-used method for eliciting change that helps people live better and healthier across a wide variety of settings, clinical problems, and populations. MI was developed as an individual approach, focusing on dyadic interactions between the person and the counselor.  However, adapting MI for use with a group of people requires reconceptualizing its core practices to harness the power of group support, cohesion, and momentum.  Group leadership requires skills beyond those in dyadic counseling.  Managing “conversational traffic” and facilitating open sharing among people with different experiences, goals, styles, and beliefs are essential skills for group leaders.  Effective leaders must be well-prepared to address unexpected situations and maintain therapeutic bonds with individual group members while facilitating a conversation among the whole group. This six-session experiential training provides information on adapting MI to groups across a variety of formats, and is highly experiential, leading participants through group practice exercises across the four phases of MI groups.  This series will incorporate evidence-based practices with the MI modality.  Participants will become part of a group, and some will have opportunities to lead the group.  Incorporating Motivational Interviewing group skills developed by the trainers, this series guides participants in successful group leadership, refocusing groups away from rehashing problems and toward inspiring positive change. WHEN: Weekly sessions offered on the same day and start time between May 28 and July 9, 2024 PT. Day and time will depend on your location. Please locate your local time zone in the table below for your weekly start time.   LEARNING OBJECTIVES: At the end of this training experience, participants will be able to: Describe at least two (2) ways to shift from providing individual counseling in a group setting to facilitating group interactions that promote growth and wellness. Specify at least two (2) ways to model a warm, healthy, relaxed, and accepting way of being. Identify at least three (3) strategies to foster a positive group climate while deepening cohesion between members. Assess at least two (2) key elements of the expanded nature of change talk in MI groups. Explain at least two (2) ways to broaden and deepen group conversations for optimal success. Compare at least three (3) strategies to transform group conflict into moments of growth. Specify at least three (3) guided group activities such as exploring values, drawing from past successes, harnessing personal strengths, and envisioning a better future.

Telehealth has become more common in the healthcare world, including for substance use disorder and mental health treatment, but not everyone has access to the technology needed to use it. In Idaho, the Department of Health and Welfare led an initiative to create telehealth pods in libraries and other community spaces to help expand access to care and worked to provide funding, technical assistance, and other supports. In an effort to support these libraries and other telehealth access sites, the Center for Advancing Addiction Health Services (CAAHS) at the UW Addictions, Drug & Alcohol Institute (ADAI) has developed a free online toolkit with the goal of providing information that is crucial to providing safe, supportive, and accessible spaces in community settings where telehealth can be accessed. This webinar describes the Idaho library telehealth project and the development of the toolkit, then ends with a demo of the Third Space Toolkit itself. View slides | Watch recording
