Motivational Interviewing and SBIRT Training 2023

 

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is an evidence-based practice used to help people overcome their ambivalence about change.  In this interactive, skills-based workshop, participants will have the opportunity to learn about and practice the spirit of MI and both the relational and technical skills.

While there is a wealth of research supporting the positive impact on outcomes across a range of problem behaviors, a large part of the appeal of MI is its measurability. The MITI is a behavioral coding system that measures how well a practitioner is using MI. Feedback from the MITI coding system can be used to increase clinical skillfulness.

Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) is an evidence-based method for reducing harm and improving outcomes for patients with substance use disorders. This SBIRT training will prepare participants to deliver SBIRT interventions in health care and other settings.
