By attending this 3-hour course, attendees will have a basic understanding of the spirit of Motivational Interviewing (MI) and ways to begin to implement it with multi-system involved youth and families. Participants will gain practical skills to begin implementation of MI skills into their current work to collaborate with youth and families. Attendees will learn how to engage youth and family’s current motivation to change a particular behavior and then learn how to use MI open-ended questions, affirmations, reflections, and summaries (OARS) to further enhance or consolidate the client’s level of motivation.
