Theory & Practice of Motivational Interviewing - Closed Event for ITA Project Participants (3/1/19)
NDRI Training Institute
71 West 23rd Street
New York, NY 10010
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.
