This workshop provides an overview of Motivational Interviewing. It is designed to familiarize participants with the spirit, skills, and strategies of the model, and equip them to use those elements to begin work in this evidence-based practice. Methods used will include lecture and discussion, live and videotaped demonstration and coached practice. Motivational Interviewing is a person-centered, directional method of conversation that engages a person’s internal motivation to make positive changes in their lives. This evidence-based approach focuses on partnering with the person and drawing on their experiences and wisdom to develop reasons for change and strategies to achieve it. This is a presentation for the CJ system.
