Utilizing MI can be very helpful with variety of issues where clients are ambivalent about change. MI reduces resistance and empowers clients to take steps for change. Even though MI evolved from experience in the treatment of substance related issues, the applications are endless, including increasing the treatment engagement with clients who are system-involved. In addition to didactic training, videos, and handouts, participants will practice and experience using MI skills through experiential activities.
