Enhancing Your MI Practice - A Self-Assessment Tool (Part 1)

Training alone is not enough to refine the practice of Motivational Interviewing. This two-part, three-hour interactive webinar training introduces and guides learners through the use of a brief, user-friendly, self-assessment tool, developed to support individual reflection and enhancement of MI practice. Participants will use the self-assessment tool to review audio recordings of MI sessions and discuss how to implement personal use of the tool within their unique work setting.

Learning Objectives:
1. Describe each section of the LPP self-assessment tool.
2. Demonstrate the ability to identify a client-centered behavioral change goal.
3. List and define each of the MI skills to be noted when using the LPP.
4. Identify 'intentional' use of MI skills.
5. Compose specific, strengths based, self-enhancement feedback.

Module 1. A Users Guide to the LPP.
Module 2. Tool Components Focus.
Module 3. The LLP in Action.
Module 4. Implementation, an Individualized Process.
Module 5. Tailored Feedback & Next Steps.
