Overview:  This webinar defines the evidence-based practice of Motivational Interviewing (MI) and draws attention to the distinction between practicing MI and Client-Centered Counseling. Many providers, because they've attended an MI training, are under the impression they are practicing MI. When in reality, based on review of audio recordings, they are not. This interactive opportunity will address this misconception and help providers to intentionally practice MI when appropriate.
