Most trainings on Motivational Interviewing convey the 'concept' of "Change Talk" as essential and ignore or gloss over how to intentionally use Change Talk to build motivation for change. This practice session goes beyond concept and into action. You will learn how to evoke Change Talk and what to do with it when you hear it. A prior knowledge of the CORE skills of MI (OARS) is helpful and not required to join this Learning Community Practice Session (LCPS).
