Motivational Interviewing (MI) is an evidence based practice developed and refined to build intrinsic motivation about behavior change. MI is a ‘client-centered conversation’ focused on the exploration and resolution of ‘ambivalence’ about a collaboratively defined ‘change goal’. This interactive training defines and demonstrates the essential components necessary for ‘intentional’ practice: MI Spirit, the Four Processes and the core skills; represented by the acronym OARS. Learners will engage in practice opportunities and observe demonstrations of effective and ineffective practice.
