In this two-day workshop, we will provide participants with cultural approaches through hands-on real-play, role-play, and exercises to increase their basic clinical style of Motivational Interviewing (MI). We will explore, adapt, and practice these skills through alignment with the Spirit of MI and Native values. We will encourage and strengthen confidence to use and model the components of MI: “Spirit”, OARS, TOOLS, and the Four Processes. We will demonstrate how to strengthen and practice using empathic counseling skills culturally, raise awareness of the cultural issues related to resistance, and to recognize the language cues that allow for client feedback and learning in practice.
